Delegate training

Our courses are designed to take place face-to-face and online via Zoom (see below).

We always hope to see our delegates in person, however, due to health and safety in Covid times, your course may be moved online.

Skills for delegates

We offer many courses to help you build your knowledge and skills as a delegate to give you confidence to lead members.
