Winter is Coming!
Winter is Coming and so is our next Open Programme!
Christmas is just around the corner, and ’tis the season for celebrating, gorging and, finally, hibernating on the sofa with a large box of empty calories. Once you’ve emerged from your Christmas coma, how about sharpening up with one of our fabulous training courses?
Our new Open Programme for January to March is on its way. Keep your eyes peeled for new courses as they are added.
January is all about training that supports general staff and volunteers.
February sees the arrival of our communication courses that can help you to hone your powers of persuasion. There will also be a healthy mix of essential courses such as First Aid, Manual Handling and Safeguarding.
March will provide a cornucopia of voluntary sector-specific courses. Expect to see Finance, Fundraising and First Aid, as well as Volunteer Management amongst others.
Have a look at the calendar to see what takes your fancy.

Train with us
We get results
92% of people we trained last year say they are now performing better in their jobs, and 86% of charities who sent their staff to us say their organisation has become more efficient as a result.
Expert trainers, high quality training
Our trainers are the voluntary sector’s top experts in leadership, management, fundraising and communications, ready to give you the best quality training. Last year, 98% of people we trained said our trainers were either “excellent” or “good”.
We know times are tough. We work hard to get funding to subsidise the costs of our training for charities and community groups from a range of sources. As A Non-for-Profit, all funds are invested to support the sector.
Why travel to London when you can receive the same high quality training on your doorstep? Our courses run throughout Essex, at venues convenient to you.
Suitable for big and small charities
We have training to suit everyone – whether you’re from a new or small group looking for basic guidance or from a bigger, well established organisation looking for more advanced advice. Our prices are tiered accordingly.
We work with charities, voluntary sector organisations and community groups. This means our training is totally relevant to you and your needs.
We were established in 1999 thanks to a Lottery grant to provide training in Uttlesford. Since then, we’ve expanded all over Essex and beyond and delivered over 2,000 courses supporting well over 21,000 people. We merged with Community360 on 1st September 2017 and will continue to offer an enhanced and sustainable training programme for the voluntary and community sector in Essex.
