Online courses

Public Health Wales is offering all parents, parents-to-be, grandparents and care-givers free access to a series of online courses designed to help them understand the development and emotional milestones of their children, covering everything from pre-birth to late teens. 

The four evidence-based courses have been designed by NHS and other experts to provide extra support to all, alongside more traditional help from family, friends and professionals.

The courses explore topics including play, styles of parenting, sleep, temper tantrums, communications and more, and are all available online from now until May 2021.

To get access users just need to visit and use the code ‘NWSOL’ if you live in North Wales, and ‘SWSOL’ if you live in Mid, West or South Wales. Then simply choose the courses that are most relevant to your child or children, split into four easy to use sections covering:

  • Understanding pregnancy, labour birth and your baby
  • Understanding you baby
  • Understanding your child
  • Understanding your teenager’s brain
