The story so far….

Training is important for partnership working in order to support people to get the right advice in the right place, to reduce burden on the primary advice providers in the area and to ensure that support organisations and clients are aware of other sources of help.

Advice North Somerset has delivered a comprehensive training programme to the sector to improve people’s skills. In particular, more than 70 people have been trained in Advice Awareness giving them high-quality skills training to identify when people need specialist advice and what other support is available.

The courses are listed below. If you want more information about any of them, please contact us.

Current training

We are currently offering training via our sister network, ACFA (Advice Centres for Avon). Their current programme is shown on our events page. You can also find details of other training courses in the area, and a range of training courses aimed at advice workers, support workers and other organisations giving free advice, information and support in North Somerset.


We are in the process of setting a computer-based e-learning system. The first course to be launched will be “Advice Awareness” in October.
