We currently offer the following training:

FIRST AID Training for youth workers / adult volunteers. This can be held at your premises and normally runs from 10 am to 4 pm.
FIRST AID TASTERS A workshop taster for young people in their club setting.
INTRODUCTION TO YOUTH WORK Training to help adult volunteer or paid club workers improve their youth work skills and knowledge. The course is run over 2 days with a week in between each session to allow home study to be completed.
HOW TO RUN A YOUTH CLUB SUCCESSFULLY Training over one day or two evenings to help look at the essentials of running a youth club from setting boundaries, dealing with challenging behaviour and stress management.
INTRODUCTION TO SAFEGUARDING AND ONLINE SAFETY In partnership with Safety-net Brighton we can offer these staff/volunteer training sessions at your club, normally on week day evenings between 6 and 9 pm.
