Community Action Suffolk has announced details of its latest training courses aimed at voluntary and community organisations in Suffolk.

CAS will run 21 different courses from September through to December 2016, covering a range of topics, with courses starting from as little as £25.

Building on their portfolio of successful courses, such as an Introduction to business planning, CAS has added two new courses, Demystifying social media and an accredited Theory of Youth Work course.

Jacqui Wilkinson, Training and Quality Standards Development Officer at CAS, said:

“Our training is designed to build confidence, resilience and independence of organisations in Suffolk. It is delivered by experienced CAS staff and trusted partners who provide interactive, professional, friendly and engaging courses.

“All our courses will inform participants, enabling them to better serve their local communities. Some of our courses will equip organisations to fulfil some of their statutory and legal responsibilities, such as safeguarding or health and safety. ”

Recent feedback from those who have attended CAS’s courses is regularly positive,

“I understand my role as a Trustee better now and will be able to contribute better,” said a participant in the ‘Trustee roles and responsibilities for good governance’ course in June 2016.

“Fabulous practical ideas which… can easily be put into practice,” said a participant on the ‘Understanding young people’s mental health: self esteem’ course in March 2016.

Although courses are primarily aimed at the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, they are relevant and suitable for organisations and individuals working with public and private sectors. To see all courses offered by CAS, or to book your place online:
