Home » Support for Groups » Training Courses

We have a regular programme of training to support groups and organisations in their day-to-day running, as well as offering bespoke tailored training.

Our trainers include NCVS staff and external trainers. Our courses build on the latest policy issues that affect the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, including new legislation briefings, and will enable you to keep up-to-date with staff, trustee and volunteer development.

We regularly review our training programme to ensure that it is useful and relevant to the groups we support. All sessions take place at NCVS, 7 Mansfield Road, Nottingham NG1 3FB. If you have training needs that aren’t met by our current programme, please email us.

** Special Notice **

We have postponed our traditional training programme in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Instead, we are beginning to offer shorter online sessions for some of our most popular courses. We are also introducing a range of new online training opportunities. Please check below for training courses which will be delivered via Zoom.
