Online Training

Our training is being delivered online via the Zoom platform, and will be until at least the end of the year. We will re-introduce face to face training when it feels safe to do so. Our online courses are run live with a trainer enabling you to ask questions and learn from their expertise, but also share ideas, unpick issues and learn from your peers on the course.

We aim to run courses that address current issues and cover the latest in homelessness and supported housing policy and practice.
