Welcome to the Stronger Together Training Programme

In response to our recent Training Needs Survey, we are delighted to launch our new Training Programme.

We offer a range of specialist training courses designed to develop the skills and knowledge of the diverse Voluntary and Community Sector in Bolton. All our courses are tailored in line with what you tell us you need and are designed to be accessible to all levels of staff and volunteers.

High Quality
All our training is delivered by suitably qualified trainers who offer a wealth of experience and up to date knowledge on current issues in their field – this way, you can be confident of a positive learning experience that aims to help your organisation be the best it can be.

Affordable
Bolton CVS is committed to making the training programme as accessible as possible to the Voluntary and Community Sector in Bolton. We believe our training provides excellent value for money and aim to keep our training courses as affordable as we can without losing quality. In order to support small grassroots organisations with limited access to funds, we are able to offer a number of funded places through our
Big Bolton Fund Training Grant.

Relevant
We have listened to what you tell us and have designed our specialist courses to meet the challenges of the sector. We believe in utilising the skills and knowledge that already exist within voluntary and community organisations in Bolton and where appropriate, will offer training delivered by our member organisations.
