Professional Development

In an ambition to build a network of trained trainers who can deliver our courses or just want to be more knowledgeable about certain current topics, we put together a varied Professional Development Programme (PDP) every term. Some of our training courses are only about how to deliver our programmes of learning and there is an application process for these courses. For more information on our current programme, contact 

Playwork Partnerships' PDP is for Playwork Partnerships Associate Trainers and for you to take every advantage to develop your knowledge and skills in playwork and playwork training.

We hope that through this training and development programme we will be able to meet some of your local requests for support. However, if there is a gap please contact us so that specific training can be planned to meet your local needs.

All our training courses and workshops, seminars and conferences have previously been endorsed through SkillsActive.


Ongoing Support

As part of our commitment to the playwork sector Playwork Partnerships offers ongoing support through updates on national initiatives, changes to qualifications and news from the sector. We are involved at national level within the sector and are therefore up to date with current issues and we have a dedicated Training & Development Officer who will respond to e-mail requests and phone calls and signpost when necessary.

To keep in touch sign up to our regular e-bulletin by getting in touch with us.

"Really good course. Fun and informative."
