Previous experience of Course provider/trainer (relevant if they are providing a revised training modules or manual) As you will have seen on facebook, we are delighted that we have now purchased our building Forrest House which gives us stability and greater scope for the future.  Our next step is to develop a trading arm, and under that as well as various social enterprises which our vulnerable families run, we are also planning to become a training centre, and have a route for accrediting the courses via University of East London, where my supervisor (a doctor and lecturer) is excited by what we do. This will probably take a year to set up, but before I expire from this work it is my desire to produce the courses listed above from our experiences.
What course achieves for the participants (e.g. qualification gained, any accreditation, which centres recognise this course)
Steps taken to ensure the quality of the resource It is our intention to be delivering accredited courses as these hold so much more weight.
Any further support offered to support trainers using this course If any people ask me for training I would be very happy to consider working with them, time permitting etc..
Any other relevant information to share with Centre Leaders At this moment all of them are in embryonic form (some further advanced than others) and being honed, as we are also expanding our support.
