Herts VCSE training forum

Quarterly online training forum, launched to support training professionals in the Hertfordshire voluntary, community, and social enterprise sector.

NEW for 2021-2022!
We would like to invite training professionals within Hertfordshire to join the new Herts VCSE Training Forum, launched by HCF Training & Development to support the training, learning and development community.

Who the forum is for:
Do you deliver in-house training, volunteer training or workforce development training? It does not matter what subject of training you deliver, the forum is open to all training professionals, consultants or staff who manage training, so please do join us.

Next forum date: Wednesday 16 March 2022
Time: 10.00-11.30
Cost: FREE to attend

Book your March place HERE
We will be meeting quarterly to discuss a different topic in relation to the development of the training sector. Each session will be introduced by a guest speaker in the discussion topic field, followed by interactive discussion amongst peers on the topic at hand.

The forum will give you an opportunity to network with peers, learn from each other and for us to work together as a community to discuss problems and find solutions within the sector.

In March we will be discussing: Communicating effectively with your audience, whether online or in person.
We will be joined by Elizabeth Gowing. Elizabeth is a professional writer and co-founder of charity ‘The Ideas Partnership’ and was recently invited by the Prime Minister of Kosovo to join his cabinet as an Advisor on Community Affairs. Elizabeth leads our HCF online course ‘Telling the story of your work’ and will be joining the March Forum to give some advice to trainers on how to improve their communication techniques whilst leading training, whether online or in-person.
