Bookbug for the Home training

This course is for professionals or volunteers working with families who would benefit from extra support with song, rhyme and book sharing.

Due to the ongoing situation (and particularly the uncertainty around singing and COVID-19 transmission(this will open in a new window)) we have taken the difficult decision to suspend Bookbug for the Home training until further notice. Please sign up to our Working with Bookbug newsletter(this will open in a new window) to be alerted when we resume training.

Bookbug for the Home is a flexible approach that can be used to engage families in one to one interactions or in small groups. 

The training provides the delegate with all of the theoretical and practical knowledge and resources they will need to try Bookbug activities in a family’s home or in a small group.

This training does not train you to run full 30-minute Bookbug Sessions with groups. If you are interested in delivering Bookbug Sessions, please see our page on Bookbug Session Leader training.
