How to find our courses

Take a look at our Training Calendar

Note - past courses are still available to view via the search bar. If there is no year on the dates we advise checking the current Training Calendar to make sure it is a current course.

Course costs from 1 September 2017

Prices are detailed in the course information and may sometimes differ from our general price bands. Our price bands always apply to the overall organisation not to individual projects.

We presume that you have permission to attend the course from your manager/ the organisation. If you do not have permission and you attend the course we reserve the right to charge you the rate for individuals.

If your organisation has outstanding invoices with us we may insist that these are paid before taking bookings for any further courses.

We will continue to run free and low-cost courses (e.g. £10 per person) and special offers. We may also run courses for other organisations who have a different pricing structure. We will make this clear on the course details.

Places on First Aid courses and courses run through Bradford University are only available for voluntary and community organisations or social enterprises.

If courses are free or £10 then places may only be available for certain groups. Please check with us before booking if you are unsure about eligibility. On free courses we may make a charge of £10 for non-attendance.

Book online via the course page and we will invoice once the booking is received.


Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided on arrival and during breaks. 

Please note: In order to keep costs down we do not provide lunch on any of our courses, unless otherwise stated on the confirmation email or course details.

Entry Requirements

In general our courses are aimed at Level 2-3 and above.

Our courses are tailored to make them relevant to voluntary and community sector staff so that you will be able to go back to your organisation and apply the knowledge and skills you have gained. 

Specific entry requirements are stated on the course pages e.g. Quick Books courses require general word processing and data entry skills.

Cancellation Policy

All courses are subsidised for voluntary and community groups and non-attendance means that this money is lost or that we can run fewer courses in future. In addition we often have waiting lists where places could be filled if appropriate notice of a cancellation is given.

  • Cancellations must be made in writing either by email to or by text to 07410 441478
  • Refunds will only be given if you have given us 5 clear working days notice
  • If less than 5 clear working days notice is given the full course fee will still be payable
  • Non-attendance is classed as a late cancellation and the full fee will be payable
  • We may charge for non-attendance at free courses - check the course details
  • You may delegate another member of your organisation to attend in your place rather than lose the full fee but you should let us know.

We appreciate that, on occasion, non-attendance is unavoidable. However we ask that the delegate’s organisation covers the cost (where less than 5 clear working days notice has been given) so that we can keep course fees as low as possible.

All delegates are expected to check that they have authorisation to attend the course from their organisation.
