Delivering Remote Training to your Home Office

COViD- 19 may impact on your staff team, workplace and organisation, with many folks choosing to work from home. During this time it can be hard to keep people connected and motivated.

Why not use this opportunity to offer fun, interactive and VIRTUAL professional development. CAWA can deliver many of our courses via a virtual platform.

One of the biggest barriers to meeting training needs of staff is finding the time in a busy schedule for them to have non-contact hours. So why not take this opportunity to ensure staff learning and development is up to date?

Contact us to see how we connect your teams through learning, using the latest virtual classroom software.

This resource may be helpful to support you, your loved ones, folks you know and your community. Please share widely.

Upcoming Workshops

All current CAWA workshops are still going ahead unless otherwise noted. We have taken extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of our participants and the smaller size of our workshops mean we are able to continue to confidently deliver face to face training at this stage.
