Our Courses


All of Playwork Partnerships training courses have been developed with the underpinning of the Playwork Principles and are inspiring to the people who attend..

Our courses are:

  • Based on research and development with practitioners and therefore reflect practical experience of working with children and young people.
  • Embed a range of learning methods to ensure the sessions are fun and engaging to the learner
  • Some courses have been clearly mapped to the National Occupational Standards in the sector to enable learners to have a clear progression route and to access the appropriate course for their work
  • Available to be delivered by us or through local trained providers either in the UK or internationally
  • Are nationally recognised
