Staff Training

The YMCA Menu of Services recognises that successful implementation of our programmes requires a united effort.
It is therefore important for the on-going sustainability and impact of our work that staff have access to additional knowledge and training. YMCA are specialists in young people, and as such have the knowledge and partnerships to offer a wealth of support to schools.
In response to teacher’s feedback we have developed a variety of training packages to suit individual school budgets and requirements. Whilst there are a number of pre-written courses listed below, we are able to design bespoke sessions to meet your training requirements. Therefore please consider the courses below as a guide only and contact us for more information. Prices will vary according to development requirements but start from just £20 a head.
