TRAINING


In addition to training events listed on our EVENTS page, we offer the following training opportunities for your youth leadership team:

Online Training

To maintain a consistent level of competency for all our youth leaders we recommend the option of online training, which all leaders can do in their own time on their own phone or device. Training includes downloadable content which key leaders can use with their teams to further enhance and reinforce what was learnt.

Duty of Care

A course for all leaders that covers the essentials of safe and ethical practice within youth ministry.

Small Groups
A course that teaches the importance of small groups and provides practical insights into how to lead well.
