Bespoke training for your organisation

Due to the pandemic, we're continuing to deliver all our training online.  We offer training on a broad range of essential topics such as safeguarding, project management, fundraising, advocacy and influencing, transparency and grants and contracts from FCDO and other donors and institutions.

Our bespoke service is a cost-effective and convenient solution designed to meet your specific training needs. From the start, we work closely with you to clarify your learning objectives, scrutinise the detail of the course content and explore options to adapt it using your own context, case studies or documents. We then match your requirements with one of our expert trainers.

  • Tailored approach: our bespoke training offers flexibility over topic, course length, level, delivery method and venue.  Tailored to fit the needs of your organisation.
  • Expertise: our team of associate trainers have a wide range of expertise and sector experience. We select a trainer with the most relevant practical experience to meet your organisational training needs.
  • Cost-efficient: bespoke training is competitively priced and likely to be the most cost-efficient option if you have a group of staff to train. Bond members received a substantial discount.
  • Proven quality: over many years, we've delivered successful training for small and large NGOs, charities, government departments, UN agencies, international bodies, educational institutions and private sector organisations.

We are proud to have delivered training to a diverse range of organisations in the UK and around the world, including to staff teams based in different countries and national in-country organisations.

Siobhan O’Dowd from Frontline Aids says:

I will highly recommend this course to everyone who is or about to manage an EC contract. Good to have this in-house.

Katy Cheney from Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad says:

We were very happy with the one day, in-house Bond Safeguarding training. It was pitched at exactly the right level for our team members with a good balance of thought provoking content, interactive group sessions and tailored exercises to help us develop our approach. Our trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable and flexible in managing a multilingual environment.
