September Training Week

Our trainings this September will all be virtual, via zoom, so you will be able to enjoy them from the comfort of your own homes. Each session will be focussed on a section, but each one will run several times so that those of you who have several roles can book for as many as you like. They will also be available at different times (early evening, later evening and daytime Saturday). We aim to inspire you with ideas for when we can restart face to face guiding, answer your questions, and share your issues. Don’t miss out – sign up!

Each session will be 1 – 1.25 hours long and any material used will either be signposted or emailed around.
