Our Training Offer

Our Training Opportunites provide practitioners and volunteers with advice and information about how to access different types of learning and development activities relating to their area of work or interest.

Multi-agency training helps practitioners and volunteers understand their roles, responsibilities and safeguarding procedures; and creates a shared understanding of assessment and decision making practices. Training can be face to face, online or a combination.


We provide access to free face to face and online learning to multi-agency practitioners who work with adults, children and families in Manchester.
