What is Train the Trainer?
The aim of the Train the Trainer programme is to support organisations that want to access and deliver Parliamentary training, enabling their members and communities to learn about and engage with the work and processes of Parliament.
Courses are based in Westminster, however we welcome applications from across the UK - if you are accepted onto either course, travel and accommodation will be arranged for you as required. After completion of the course, trainers and organisations will benefit from access to approved resources, on-going regional support from an Outreach Officer and use of an approved trainer website kite mark.
