London Friend’s trainers bring a wealth of experience from working both front line and strategically with LGB&T people and organisations. We train in a relaxed and comfortable style with plenty of time for participants to ask questions and exploration of issues you may be unfamiliar with.
We’ll also provide you with a range of additional resources for later reference or self-directed learning, and offer practical ways of applying learning in the workplace beyond the training course itself. We’re also happy to continue to support you following our training.
