 WHAT TRAINING YOU NEED! As part of their commitment to delivering training that meets the needs of organisations, their staff and volunteers, would like information from you that will help them to put together a training programme that meets the needs of you and your group.

In Resources, to the right of the page you will find Training Needs Analysis Forms. Let them know your individual learning needs, and those of your organisation.

SCVS would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete the form/s, as it will help to ensure that their training programme reflects the needs of the Sector in Swansea.
