“Coaching is unlocking people’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn, rather than teaching.” – Sir John Whitmore

Our coaching and training services are shaped by the people who use them. We provide relevant, dynamic learning opportunities in partnership with other agencies. Our experienced team members and well-trained volunteers support participants to set and achieve effective goals. We nurture and promote positive, inclusive learning environments.

Find out about our current training opportunities below.

Please note, all of our training programmes are currently online only. We look forward to offering in-person opportunities when it is safe to do so.
