Training and Resources

To make sure organisations reach their full potential, competent knowledgeable leaders are essential

That’s why we offer a wide range of training and development opportunities for leaders and volunteers who work with young people. We deliver, support and facilitate a range of programmes which include nationally recognised awards and qualifications. We focus on leadership training and have developed courses for a future generation of competent leaders.

Our training and resources mean that leaders can make the biggest possible impact on the lives of young people– raising their aspirations and providing positive experiences.

Last year:

  • We supported the delivery of 1,000 training opportunities ranging from leadership qualifications with The Institute of Leadership and Management, Basic Safeguarding and Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) sessions
  • Delivered 25 bespoke training sessions to our membership which included tutor training, quality development and portfolio building, Working with Young People and strategic development
  • Almost 400 staff and volunteers achieved a Level 1,2 or 3 award in leadership
  • Developed our online capability to deliver flexible training programmes which included leadership, communication, strategic planning, equality and diversity
