Our specialised team offers professional training courses to individuals interested in entering the sector or in professional development in substance misuse work.  Our 1 year Open College Network South West Region accredited Level 3 course the “Access to HE Diploma: Practitioner in Substance Misuse” provides learners with an opportunity to increase their employability in a rapidly growing sector.

Our training department also provides many short workshops and courses.  This has afforded us the opportunity to make a significant contribution to training the counsellors and drug and alcohol practitioners of tomorrow, in a well-respected, high-quality environment.
