Toolkit courses

These toolkit courses are fully interactive, with knowledge tests throughout the day, and practical exercises. You will not just be sitting watching PowerPoint – join in on microphone or camera, and have an enjoyable and illuminating day with your fellow delegates.  

After the course, you’ll have access to a resource page with case studies, guidance, important developments and a recording of the course. This will be updated regularly, and access will remain open after you attend. You will receive an audit guide whichever course you attend. Each session is £250 + VAT for the day including materials, resource page access and a place on the Q+A session.
