Training and Events

Amber Valley CVS is committed to providing and promoting learning and development opportunities for the voluntary sector in our area. We facilitate and promote events which bring together volunteers and voluntary groups or organisations to share ideas and provide a collective view from the sector. We operate a continuous programme of short courses in many subjects. If there is any area where you require assistance with training please contact us. If we have no current courses for this topic we can research and advise you where to go or arrange the course in the near future.

To support training activity within voluntary groups or organisations, Amber Valley CVS has the following: Resources We hire out equipment like flip chart stands, overhead projectors and display boards for a nominal hire charge. We can also photocopy handouts, put together training material packs or laminate posters for a small fee. In need of a venue? We have information on rooms available to hire for training courses, catering arrangements and charges as well as having our own training room that you can hire to use.
