Training

We provide two types of training courses: "Open" courses that anyone can book to attend and "Standard" courses designed for agencies who are training several members of staff simultaneously.

Whether you're setting up your own project or just want to improve your skills and extend your knowledge we can meet your needs with our high quality training programmes. Our off-the-shelf courses include introductory, intermediate and advanced programmes in all aspects of work with young people who sexually abuse.

We can also deliver customised training designed with you to ensure your specific staff development needs are catered for. We have substantial experience in training staff in social services, probation services and allied fields.

For example we have devised a national training programme specifically for Fostering Solutions including courses such as 'Caring for young people with complex histories and sexually harmful behaviours - an attachment and trauma perspective'.

Our trainers are experienced professionals led by our Programme Director, Bobbie Print, who has worked and published extensively in the field and has many years experience of training and presenting at conferences.

Our training courses are designed for a variety of professionals with different roles, qualifications and levels of experience. They are all based on up to date research and practice concerning young people with sexually harmful behaviours and designed to contribute towards and enhance staff 's individual skills and knowledge.  However we suggest that organisations consider the suitability of each staff member to undertake this work whilst ensuring that they will have access to the internal resources and management structures that are necessary to support staff working in this area.

From time to time we run 'open' courses in Manchester and individual places can be purchased directly. See the home page for information about currently available courses.

We can provide a limited number of courses throughout the year for agencies in their localities. Course outlines for the training currently available to agencies can be accessed via the links below. Courses cost 850 per day, plus necessary travel and accommodation costs for our trainer. All costs are subject to VAT at the standard rate.

We are happy to discuss the adaptation of our standard courses for agencies that wish to purchase training for staff in their own locality. If you would like to discuss such arrangements, or any other aspect of our training provision, please get in touch. Our contact details are here.
