Training courses available to GMPA’s network over the next 6 months
Over the last 2 years we have delivered a small number of paid for training courses in partnership with Policy North Training. The courses equip stakeholders with the knowledge they need to fight poverty both in Greater Manchester and across the UK as a whole. This includes the following course
Maximising support for people on low incomes – taking place on Thursday 28th January and Monday 28th June. This course is for housing providers, VCSE and public sector organisations who work with people experiencing poverty and who wish to understand how to maximise support for their service users. Please sign up if you’re interested in understanding more about the current social security landscape and the financial and other help that’s available to low-income service users.

Understanding poverty measurement, definitions and data – taking place on Thursday 25th March and Tuesday 11th May. This course is for people who want to understand more about how poverty is measured and how to access robust, accurate and up-to-date data. By the end of this one-day course participants have developed an understanding of what key poverty datasets tell us, how best to access data sources and how to use this knowledge to support the work that they do, whether that be designing services or writing funding bids.
