The Facilitated Online Courses

The courses comprehensively cover the six NPQ content areas, leaving providers free to provide the face to face events of their choosing and focus on other elements such as faith, local context or simply deepen the participants knowledge and understanding.

Developing partnership

We provide the online element of the learning blend and our partners generally provide development days, coaching and programme support.  And online courses can be customised to meet providers’ needs.
