Online training for professionals in Scotland

We are pleased to offer a number of new online courses for professionals in Scotland. These courses are open to any professionals or volunteers in Scotland who are looking to strengthen and deepen their understanding of domestic abuse. Please note all sessions will be hosted on Zoom and the cost of each course is £45.

Excellent training delivered well over zoom. Given the different environment I really liked the flexibility allowed for discussing/sharing as well as the great learning materials.
