How it works

We can run scheduled one day courses throughout the year and they are suitable for professionals and carers working with children and their families including teachers, police, social workers, carers, therapists, health professionals, guardians, and other practitioners. We will:

  • Identify your specific requirements
  • Devise course content and programmes to meet those needs
  • Provide experienced, qualified trainers to deliver the course

If you are interested in requesting training from us or would like any more information, please contact us.

We also occasionally advertise spaces on training courses that we are commissioning from other services and providers for our own practitioners, providing individuals and private practitioners with a link into and opportunity to join specialist training which may otherwise be inaccessible. 

These are advertised in our bi-monthly Professionals Newsletter and on our LinkedIn
