Training

The majority of our training is delivered by expert trainers with extensive experience of working and volunteering in the voluntary and community sector.  All trainers are fully qualified and bring with them a range of skills and experience which enables us to provide you with a high quality training programme.

What we do

We are continuously developing new and innovative training to ensure staff and volunteers in the voluntary sector are able to attend training that not only helps their professional development but enables the voluntary sector to deliver high quality services.

  • Deliver a seasonal training programme to VCS in Hounslow
  • Conduct bi-annual surveys to identify and respond to the training needs within the sector
  • Continuously monitor and evaluate our training to ensure we are providing high quality training solutions
  • Provide affordable in-house training for organisations who require a bespoke service

We also include a comprehensive training section in every Hounslow VCS e-newsletter. This includes special courses within and outside the borough on a huge range of topics from safeguarding children to using social media. Many of the courses are free or affordable for community groups, so sign-up to receive these monthly bulletins.

How we can help

Hounslow is a large diverse borough and we understand that each organisation has their own pressures and priorities, which is why we offer a range of courses to suit the needs of new developing organisations as well as those who are well established and experienced.
