We’ve teamed up with Stephenson College to offer free work-book based course to our volunteers. This is an opportunity to complete a Level 2 course free of charge. The courses are work-book based, so can be completed in your own time to fit around other commitments.

All courses are fully funded as long as they are completed in full. Failure to complete the course will incur a charge to cover the cost of the workbook and registration fee.
You will be given 12 weeks to complete your course and you will be supported by Cathy, a Stephenson College Tutor throughout your course duration.
You need to let us know by no later than 21st February which course you are interested in, to allow time for us to order your workbook.
You will then need to attend a sign up session on 26th February at 6pm, at: Homeca re Support, Craig House, 33 Ballbrook Avenue, Didsbury, M20 3JG, where you can meet Cathy, the tutor and collect your workbooks!
