TELL US WHAT TRAINING YOU NEED! As part of our commitment to delivering training that meets the needs of organisations, their staff and volunteers, we'd like information from you that will help us to put together a training programme that meets the needs of you and your group.
In Resources, to the right of the page you will find Training Needs Analysis Forms. Let us know your individual learning needs, and those of your organisation.
We would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete the form/s, as it will help to ensure that our training programme reflects the needs of the Sector in Swansea.
