Which course is right for you?

Our courses now cover more subjects than ever - and never have you needed their benefits more.

We only cover five areas.  Research and evaluation - what must be done and how well you're doing, better communication - essential to getting action; effective resident and community involvement which ensures you deliver the right services to those who need them, diversity - ensuring you provide equitable services and initiatives and community safety - helping to build safer communities.

We have more courses, more and better-qualified leaders, than anyone else.

Why not set aside a few minutes to see if there is something here for you?  If you don't find what you're looking for, let me know on 0800 612 0910 or send an email to rod@rodlaird.co.uk

What some recent delegates had to say...

"Excellent and very useful. Learnt lots!! Following attendance at the course we are now in the process of setting up social networking sites to allow members of the community to contact us more easily."
Jane Mowat, Director, Safer York Partnership

"A number of new ideas (too many to mention) and confirmation of how other people work and how they should work. Very useful to meet others in the same field."
Dr Iain Inglis, Senior Research Officer, Glasgow City Council

"The trainer was very competent and the seminar therefore worth the cost. A nice venue and good lunch helped."
Sharon Gordon, Strategic Partnership Manager, London Borough of Enfield

"A really useful, enjoyable and stimulating day. I have been working in this field for 3 years and it shows that you don't know it all and that there are new ideas to keep up with and to consider and implement."

Rachel Wolstenholme, Community Investment Manager, Guinness Trust

Joy Scott Thompson, Youth Officer Training and Curriculum Development, Brimingham Youth Service
