This course is now free of charge as Voscur are currently offering free courses to support the VCSE sector during this challenging time. 

Voscur has had to cancel face to face training events due to the ongoing public health situation with coronavirus (or COVID-19). This decision was taken in line with local and national health advice, and to safeguard the health of our attendees and staff. We are aware that many VCSE organisations in the city are focusing their efforts on providing and changing their services to respond to communities. For more information about coronavirus, see

Level: Basic

Voscur theme: Leading your organisation

This course is currently free – the usual rates would be: Full Member: £55, Associate Member: £77, Non Member: £94. This is part of our offer to the VCSE sector, providing extra support during the pandemic when we know your time, energy and resources are all pushed to the limit. However, if you book a course and then cannot make the training, please do let us know by 3pm the day before the course, as someone else can then benefit from taking part – our courses often have large waiting lists at present. Voscur reserves the right to charge an admin fee for anyone who does not attend the course and has not informed us.
