We provide bespoke training which offers a flexible and cost-effective way to meet your organisation’s and individual learning needs.

Our courses are fun, participative and take place in a relaxed learning environment, they can provide you and your organisation with the skills needed to provide an excellent service. We recognise that people learn in different ways; in our new training programme you will find a variety of short courses, workshops, accredited learning, seminars and online learning opportunities. All of our training is led by experts in their field who are committed to the values of the third sector in Wales. 

Our courses can be delivered to any number of participants in a location that works for you. We charge for trainer’s fees plus travel costs, production of handouts and materials. Your organisation will need to provide the venue and refreshments, if applicable.

We work with you to plan and customize the course. We recommend filling the course to bring down the cost per head. What about inviting other organisations to attend – building partnership relationships and making it cheaper for everyone?

Training can be delivered as a half day, full day or several days. Please contact us for an informal discussion of your training needs.
