Our new 2016/17 Learning and Development Programme is open for bookings!


Voluntary Action Sheffield (VAS) has trained thousands of staff and volunteers for over twenty years. We deliver high quality, reasonably priced learning and development events. Our friendly team has over thirty years combined experience, and we can help find the right course for you.

We are committed to developing and supporting a sector that is confident, capable and sustainable. Organisations face many challenges, and we understand that your organisation needs to evolve and develop to confront those hurdles. Our learning and development programme has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to move forward, and support the communities
and people you work with. Our courses are voluntary sector focussed and they are delivered by knowledgeable and qualified trainers, all of whom have extensive experience of our sector. Learners
benefit from a supportive atmosphere and sharing experiences with other participants.

Our 2016/17 training offier has a new look and we are really excited to present a refocused set of learning and development opportunities. We have shifted our planning cycle slightly, so that in the future it will run on a financial year basis. That means that this programme is slightly shorter, running to March 2017. Bookings received before 1st September 2016 on most courses in our new programme will receive 10% off. The price shown below on each course from September is the discounted course fee. Terms and conditions apply.

There are still some courses available in our current training calendar which finishes in July. Take a look at our upcoming current programme of courses which are also shown below. 

Throughout the year, our training calendar offers;

  • Half day, one day and two day courses
  • Accredited national qualifications
  • Master classes
  • 'Focus On...' sessions
  • In-house training for organisations 
  • Low cost places for volunteers or members of small groups

If you are unsure if a course meets your learning needs, please contact the VAS Training team who will be happy to help you - training@vas.org.uk or call 0114 253 6624.
