This bespoke training programme was originally written for Wandsworth Borough Council’s workplace development; Lifetimes have negotiated for voluntary sector groups in Wandsworth and Richmond to have the opportunity to take up free training spaces.

Commissioners at the council have strongly inferred a preference for voluntary sector staff and volunteers to attend; attendance will benefit and strengthen bids and contracts in the future. Please only book a space on the course if you will definitely able to fill it as spaces are limited and we are required to report back in detail on any non-attendance. We are more than happy to accept substitutions as long as all booked places are filled. 

Organisations are entitled to a maximum of 2 places per course. Booking is essential via Wandsworth Borough Council’s TPD online. Please see below for details.
