Whether you’re looking to work with parents in pregnancy, you’re interested in the first days and months of life or you’re keen to support parents across their First 1,000 Days, we have a role to suit you.

We have currently paused our training routes for these roles except for students already enrolled on our current programme. This is while we review our training offer in this area going forward, so please check back soon for more exciting news about our plans.

If you want to train to be an NCT Practitioner to deliver our highly regarded NCT Antenatal courses for parents, we are launching an exciting new training programme - the CertHE NCT Perinatal Education and Practice.

If you are interested in enrolling as a student with us for September 2021, visit Train to be an NCT Practitioner, or contact us via our online enquiry form or email ncttrainingenquiry@nct.org.uk.
