Grampian Women’s Aid provide a wide range of training and development opportunities to increase awareness and understanding of domestic abuse and gender based violence. We have developed our training sessions in accordance with the principles, ethos and high standards of the Women's Aid movement and all are underpinned by the Scottish Government's "Equally Safe" strategy, Scotland's strategy to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls.
Our training courses provide a base level introduction and aim to equip candidates with the knowledge, confidence and skills they need to recognise, respond and work effectively with survivors of domestic abuse.
Research indicates that short, bite-sized, sessions promote the best learning when it comes to online delivery. With this in mind, we have developed our webinars to be 2-3 hours long.
We also provide training on a commissioned basis to a wide range of organisations. Training is tailored to your service and can be delivered at a time and venue/platform (zoom or Microsoft Teams) of your choice. Please contact email@example.com for further information.
