Our training programme supports our mission to strengthen the quality of youth and children’s work across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Training runs from October- June each year and is designed in consultation with member groups so we can provide the training that people need. Courses vary in length, time and day of provision so there is something to suit everyone from volunteer to sessional and core staff. Course certificates are issued for all training sessions. Training will be online via Zoom for now. We hope to run training from our Training Room again soon depending on government guidance around Covid 19.

Training is free for LAYC member groups’ staff and volunteers. Training is open to nonmembersfor a small fee – £30 for a half day and £50 for a full day. Contact enquiries@layc.org.uk to book. Member groups can book up to 2 people per organization on each training session, and additional people will go on a waiting list. For member groups we operate a training cancellation policy where if you do not attend, are more than 15 minutes late, or cancel without giving 5 working days’ notice then a fee of £25 will incur. If you have booked onto training and have not received the Zoom link it is your responsibility to check your junk mail. Thank you
