Online E-Learning Training

Specifically for Civil Society



Dawn Golder - Executive Director, FND Hope UK

"The online Safeguarding Children course is very easy to use, very informative, and my volunteers have found it very beneficial in their roles as Peer Support Workers.

Simon is very helpful and supportive and is always on hand for any questions.  I would absolutely recommend VSL Consulting for any online course."
