Associate Trainers

Mandy Parry Training works with a number of highly qualified and experienced associate trainers (see below) delivering training in a number of areas, including Child Protection and Safeguarding, Sexual Health, Abortion, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender young people and Attachment & Trauma.

This means that training can be further adapted and extended to suit the needs of your setting. For instance, to allow training in smaller groups, training can be delivered in parallel by more than one trainer.
