Greater Manchester Poverty Action is working in partnership with Policy North Training to provide training to organisations working to address poverty across the city region and the rest of the UK. We aim to support organisations to better understand some of the complexities around poverty and enable them to improve policy and practice as a result. Our spring 2020 course have either already taken place or have been postponed until later in the year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. If you booked onto a postponed course we will be in touch to regarding a new date.
Most of our courses are held in central Manchester, but we will be running our Understanding poverty measurement, definitions and data course in Wigan (18th November 2020) and our Maximising support for people on low incomes course in Oldham (4th March 2021). We aim to keep the cost of attending courses low, whilst raising revenue to grow the training offer and contribute towards GMPA’s running costs.
Policy North Training also offers bespoke, in-house training to organisations. Please email to discuss options.
Courses currently open to bookings are set out below.
