Forthcoming Training Days

Hub Cymru Africa is happy to offer the following training and development support opportunities for Wales-Africa and Fair Trade groups/organisations.

Current Training Courses

These are 1-day courses on a range of topics associated with managing a small-medium international development or Fair Trade organisation and delivering activities in Africa. Any individual or organisation based in Wales who works in these areas is eligible to attend. College/university students should only attend if they are actively involved in a relevant organisation (as these courses are designed for practical participation and support, rather than study content).

The courses are free to attend. Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits will be available, but participants will need to provide their own lunch - we will ensure that there is somewhere near each training venue where lunch food can be purchased. Travel and childcare costs cannot be claimed.

The following courses will be run over the next 6 months. Registration should be done online under the Eventbrite site links. Each course needs a minimum of 7 people to run – we will advertise the registration numbers as they occur.
