We’re pleased to be launching a series of one-day training courses for managers and front line practitioners who work with children and young people.
The courses will be piloted once in Birmingham during the period Sep-Dec 2016 before we make a decision whether the courses will be rolled out nationally.
Please note, all courses will be charged at our standard rate of £126 + VAT but will not be eligible for any of our existing offers.
Registering your interest does not commit you to booking.
We would like to find out the level of interest for the courses before we run the pilots, therefore, we will contact you in due course on the details provided to see if you would like to place a formal booking. However, please only register your interest if you are likely to be able to attend on the dates we have selected.
The new courses are:
