What is the Dadvengers New Dads Course?
Our vision at Dadvengers is to be the UK’s leading organisation supporting dads to have the confidence to be inspiring parents. We do this by providing the tools fathers need to feel more comfortable as dads. Historically there hasn’t been much in the way of resources that dads can access to help them on their parenting journey. This is changing slowly and our ‘New Dads Course’ is a great starting point for new or expectant parents who need a little extra help to feel comfortable with their role as a father.
How is it Run?
Our course for new dads is held on Zoom so it’s easily accessible for anyone in the UK with an internet connection to attend. It’s run in cohorts with a maximum of 12 dads, and we try to have dads who have babies due at around the same time in a cohort. The course is 4 weeks long with 1 x 2hr session every week. We currently run courses on evenings or weekends as this seem to fit best with peoples schedules. Finally, we advise you book a course to finish 6-12 weeks before your due date. This means the things you learn are still fresh in your mind when it comes to using them.
