This is a great opportunity to access intergenerational training and explore how it can be embedded into the work you are already doing, rather than becoming an additional piece of work. 

Please note: This site will close to bookings on Weds 17th April at 5pm, as the training resources have to be posted in advance to the training venue.

Please note: Whilst refreshments will be provided throughout the day, attendees will need to bring their own packed lunch.

Benefits of CPD

CPD helps employees keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date. It also ensures that the professional standard of their qualifications and registrations is maintained. Furthermore, it contributes to their professional sense of direction. Completing CPD helps build their confidence and credibility, allows them to showcase their achievements and equips them with tools to cope positively with change. Training courses will be of interest to those who are keen to embed intergenerational approaches within their programme of work.
