Earlier this year, we asked you for your views on the future of our training programme and what topics you'd like us to deliver.

We had 107 responses, all of whom were entered into a prize draw to win a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE place on the new Training Programme.

The winner was revealed in this latest video on our YouTube Channel 

The results of the survey told us that:

  • 78% of respondents would rather us stop providing lunch rather than increase our course fees
  • 25% or respondents would like to access training through the medium of Welsh
  • 94% of respondents prefer classroom based learning, however other methods are also important to others

We recognise that people learn in different ways; in our new training programme you will find a variety of short courses, workshops, accredited learning, webinars  and other 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.

Bespoke in-house training

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

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?
