About our training

>> Online booking for Tameside groups >>

Our package of training courses are aimed at improving the skills, knowledge and confidence of trustees, volunteers and staff of voluntary, community and faith organisations in Oldham and Tameside. Our friendly, well qualified team of trainers have been providing training over the last ten years and are happy to assist you in identifying the right courses to meet your needs. 

We run a range of training from full day courses to half day workshops on important topics like management committee skills and how to write successful funding applications. Our courses are usually free to groups with income under £25,000.  Find out what courses we have coming up and book a place. We also advertise training courses run by other organisations.  As well as attending training courses we also offer online e-learning you can access from your own PC or laptop. Learning Zone is our brand new ‘e-learning’ service in which you can access over 30 courses which you study online at a time and place to suit your needs.
