Resources for Supporting Training Advisers

The resources below have been designed for Training Managers who wish to run support, guidance and update events for their Training Advisers. They can be used if you need some help with content for your TA event, want to get feedback from your TAs on certain things or want to give your TAs an opportunity to meet up and network with each other.

Comprehensive session plans can be found in the TA Toolkit below. Some sessions require additional supporting material and this can also be accessed below.
