The NTC platform
On this platform you will find 5 training modules, containing a set of activities to be done as a group, a flipped material for self-learning and instructions for the homework part.
The content of each module will help you not only learn about the topic, but also to acquire the necessary skills and confidence to act upon it.
You can choose, whichever module is most appropriate for you and start working. The NTC team highly recommends to start with the Support and Appreciation module, which is a kind of base on which you can build upon your group support.
You either join a group or form a group yourself and start helping other mothers too. In such case you become a facilitator, and should see also the information in the following section: Information for trainers / facilitators.
How does it work
Here are the main steps you should go through
It is clear that developing new behaviour patterns and skills is not an easy task, that is why we want to share with you now: building new skills and habits is like building muscles. It requires persistence, but the more regularly you work out, the easier it becomes and eventually also very enjoyable. Working in a group with other young mothers and sharing experience can help you to keep your motivation up and learn more quickly.
If you want to join an already existing group, you can access them below. If you prefer creating your own group, please read the information for facilitators above.
Enjoy the ride!
