Upcoming courses for voluntary sector organisations in Hertfordshire

We provide a wide range of courses delivered county-wide and designed to meet the key needs and priorities of local VCS organisations. The HCF Training Calendar aims to enable voluntary and community organisations to:

  • Be well run (Governance, Management, Business skills)

  • Operate safely and legally (Safeguarding, Health and Safety, First Aid)

  • Become sustainable (Income generation, Marketing/Communications/Social Media)

We also aim to support organisations so they are able to thrive in the changing landscape. In particular we need to develop skills that will ensure organisations are equipped to deliver vital preventative services in the community and able to operate in an environment of personal budgets, direct payments and social prescribing. Organisations need to become more enterprising with improved business skills.

You can now book all the HCF courses online using Google Forms. If you need further information please get in touch with the local booking contact for each course.
