Training

Learn new skills and develop cutting-edge expertise with our highly practical training.

We’ve been developing the careers of professionals in the international development sector for over 20 years through our engaging courses. 1,665 people from 32 countries improved their knowledge through our training in 2019.

Our training is online 

We are committed to supporting your learning and development when all of us are having to find new ways of working through the Covid-19 pandemic. Up to December 2020, we’ll be delivering all our in-person courses online through our exciting new Bond learning platform.  

We’ve redesigned our face-to-face programmes to ensure your learning needs are still met. Our online courses include live sessions (using Zoom), as well as individual and group activities. We work hard to make sure you get the same level of interaction and facilitator support as you would in our training room. You’ll work in breakout rooms, use case studies, co-create documents, and even take part in role plays – all online. 

To support you further during this time of change, we have reduced the cost of courses by 20% until December. The price shown on the course page includes this discount.

We can also deliver any of our courses bespoke for your organisation. Contact [email protected] for more information.
