How it works
Training takes place throughout September and October 2020 and will happen online, using Zoom.
Attend an Introductory Session
The introductory sessions occur on a recurring basis each week. They will happen from 10am-11am each Tuesday morning, starting from 1st September. You only need to attend one introductory session.
Training Program Enrolment
After the introductory session, we will enrol you on either a Green or Gold training program. The reason we chose these two colours is because they are the colours that are used in the Hillingdon logo!
Attend Weekly Flexible Sessions (online)
Our programs occur on a weekly basis, with the flexible option to take part in either the morning or afternoon. Morning sessions run from 10am-11am and afternoon sessions run from 2pm-3pm.
Follow Up Session
Once you have completed the one hour on the introductory session and the 2 hours of either the Green or Gold training, you will then be required to take part in the follow-up session that will take place one month later.
After the follow-up session, you will be given the opportunity to sign up to the free consultancy work. Upon successful completion of the training, your organisation will be certified and given action plans, resources and work books.
