Don’t miss out on 50% discount for staff training with us!

February 19th, 2024

Did you know we offer training courses for both private sector and third sector organisations, particularly for those involved in youth work?

We are offering a week of training packages which helps to upskill staff and bring diverse perspectives to your teams. The courses are inspired by the young people we support and draw on their wealth of expertise.

The training courses are varied in their content, including:

  • Introduction to Youth Voice – in this course you’ll learn why youth voice work is important and how to engage with youth people to overcome any barriers there may be.
  • Introduction to Safeguarding in Youth Work Settings – see how confident you are around safeguarding and build on your knowledge with discussions from two experienced practitioners.
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (IWD special) – this course explores how to embed legislation and help to promote diverse and inclusive working environments.
  • How to Support Young People into the World of Work – you can hear young peoples’ thoughts and feelings about the world of work and learn how to support young people and who are not in education, employment or training when they enter the workplace.

The training week is taking place Tuesday 5th – Friday 8th March at our offices (Greenfish Resource Centre, M4 1LE.)

Someone who took part in a previous course said: “I’ve taken part in several EDI training sessions and workshops in recent years – this training session was by far the best I’ve attended. I came away with a much more nuanced understanding of EDI. I would highly recommend it!”

All of our courses provide new learnings for those working with young people, widening understanding of these subjects and gives attendees new aspects of working to incorporate into their teams.

Phil Harris, Income and Partnerships Lead at GMYN, says: “In today’s complex business environment, embracing equality, diversity and inclusion isn’t just a choice, it’s a strategic imperative.

“A commitment to promoting EDI not only creates a workplace where every individual feels valued and empowered but also unlocks a range of commercial advantages, from improved employee engagement to enhanced innovation and better customer relationships.”

Please see the links below to book onto your preferred course:

There is a 50% off discount on all bookings between 19th-25th February, so don’t miss out on this great deal and book a place now. The code 50OFF has already been applied to all courses running for the next week.
