Does your work involve delivering information, advice and guidance either one to one or to groups?
NIACE offers practical one-day training courses, which focus on the skills frontline staff need to help people effectively in a range of settings. This day focuses on developing skills and techniques to identify realistic goals and the steps to take to achieve them.
By the end of the session participants will be aware of:
