Enjoy a small or median group event in comfortable surroundings in a beautiful location beside Queens' University and Botanic Gardens. Our portfolio of courses has been carefully designed to meet the needs of both the beginner, who is still finding their feet and orientation professionally, prior to undertaking formal training programmes, and the accredited professional, who needs to attend quality 'top up 'training throughout their career to meet re-accreditation requirements.

Seminars range from half day, through one and two day, to three day events. Some will run throughout the academic year. All seminars will include certificates of attendance.

Tutors have completed at least one professional training, and at least one accreditation process, and where appropriate, will provide training materials. Seminars may be specially requested for individuals/organisations, and training may also be provided in-house.

Seminars will be advertised on our website, and also by mailings, so please let us have your email address, and let us know if you have a special area of interest.

Our programme also includes the 2010/2011 CPD seminars organised by the Northern Ireland Institute of Human Relations, some of which are open to non-Institute members.
