Course Programme

 

In 2017 Listen Well Scotland took the decision to deliver our training mainly in response to specific requests from groups/organisations.

 

These groups would then be encouraged to make the training "open" and available to "individuals" who want to access a specific course. Course fees for 2018 are listed below for your information.

N.B.Trainer expenses will be additional where applicable

 

For further information or to request a course please contact Maureen Wilson maureen@listenwellscotland.org.uk
