We are able to offer training sessions to schools and residential care service providers in New Zealand. From time to time we also host seminars or conferences with specialist presentations by expert speakers. Please see below for details of our training workshops, to make a training request by completing the form, or to check for any upcoming courses.
You are able to request 4 different types of training, which can be delivered on site or online via Zoom. Prices quoted are for Limited Members and are a contribution toward our costs. (At times, we may combine requests or offer the training to additional organisations in the area in order to reduce costs or bring forward the availability of a facilitator.)
Please get in touch with questions and talk to us regarding any issues.
We want to ensure that anyone in New Zealand requiring PWS training is able to receive it.
