Who do I contact to access a level 1 foundation course?

Most agencies and organisations provide their own Level 1 training on a ‘single agency’ basis. Below you should find the contact details for your agency training lead/administrator. They will tell you what course you need to attend and how to apply.

What if I work for a private or voluntary organisation?

If you are a paid or unpaid worker in a private or voluntary organisation, charity or community group, you will need to look at the LSCB brochure to find details of level 1 courses provided by the LSCB for these organisations.
