We offer a range of courses and qualifications, covering every aspect of advice and much more! Our training is delivered by experienced practitioners at an affordable price. Hundreds of people have taken our training, improved their practice and recommended us to others. Why not join them?


Our courses and qualifications are geared towards staff and volunteers in the advice sector. Our trainers and assessors have a wealth of practical knowledge, and many have worked in the sector so can deliver according to your needs.


Investing in training and qualifications makes individuals more productive and your organisation more efficient. This contributes to a more effective advice sector with improved outcomes for clients.


Our training reflects the diversity of our members and is flexible to meet the needs of individual learners. Training is designed to be interactive and easily transferable to your workplace, accompanied by quality up-to-date resources. Our qualifications are accompanied by a high level of support from experienced tutors.


We offer a broad range of relevant courses and qualifications. Our ‘flagship’ course is the industry-standard 10-day ‘Learning to Advise’ programme. We also offer the highly regarded ‘Effective Supervision for Managers’, Assessor & Verifier qualifications, a range of vocational qualifications and much more!


The majority of our training takes place in central London. Courses are also delivered regionally where there is demand. Or why not commission us to deliver training at your organisation, with courses tailored to meet your needs?
