Throughout the year there are several training opportunities to help equip those working with children and young people.  Details for some of these events and many other quality conferences and events which take place across the UK can be found below:

Young Gloucestershire Training Programmes

Course dates: Various throughout 2020

Their courses will help build your confidence, support you to be more organised, improve how you communicate with different people and help you to work in a team.

YG offers a relaxed and informal environment that encourages you to take the lead.  Their courses are designed to get you stuck in; having real life experiences, trying new activities and showing yourself just what you are capable of.

When do programmes start?

They have courses starting all the time so please give them a call to find out their next available start dates.

How do I get a place on a programme?

You will need to get in touch with YG and pop along for a chat about the courses and your situation, so they can make sure that whatever you are doing is the best option. Then they will do their best to get you a place on a course that is going to be right for you.

How much will it cost me?

That’s the best thing – all of YG’s courses are FREE.  They will often even pay your bus fare to help you get there every day.  Just give them a call to see how they can help:
