Coordinating the Strategic Intervention for VAWG (Manchester)

Standing Together and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will be launching a new accredited (OCN London) training course (level 4) for VAWG Coordinators/Strategic Leads, Policy Officers and Commissioners with a responsibility for VAWG.

The course will aim to increase the skills and expertise of professionals working at a strategic level in DVA/VAWG coordination. It will run over 6 days and there will be two cohorts - one in London and in Manchester. 

The Manchester dates are: 

  • 12th and 13th February 

  • 8th and 9th March

We will be offering the first two rounds of training at a reduced rate of £100 (to cover the accreditation costs). Future dates will likely be at the full rate of c. £2000.

Please book early to avoid disappointment. Priority will be given to local authority coordinators, strategic leads and commissioners.
