Training For External Organisations

The Avalon Group offers high quality training programmes designed to strengthen the development of personnel across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

Over 25 years’ experience in Social Care and training has allowed us to design sessions which can be made wholly bespoke to your organisation. Alternatively we run an existing schedule of courses throughout the year, at which we encourage interested parties to contact us should they wish to book a place.
