Intending Trainer Courses available to book now


Please find below the list of current Intending Trainer courses dates and venues. 

You can download an application form for any of the courses; please note all applications must be submitted electronically. Your place on the course is not confirmed until you have successfully passed the pre-course task.

Pease note that each PCN is linked to a Training Programme. The applicant will automatically be linked to the relevant Training Programme as outlined in the attached list.

Please see the course information guide  for full details.

Please ensure you check the eligiblity criteria in the course information guide (page 6) prior to submitting an application.


Please note, we have suspended the course fees for our Intending Trainers Course in 2021 and 2022, therefore, the following courses are free to attend.  Resubmission fees will still apply.


Please note we do also have the option of the Level Training Courses (which are also free for this year).

Level training courses – these courses allow a more staggered and flexible approach to becoming a trainer.

1. You apply to attend Level 1 which is a one day course.

2. You can then apply to for Level 2 which gives you Associate Trainer status. 

3. Level 3 is the top up course which gives you Trainer status. 


Please note that applications are accepted on a first come first served basis and if we reach capacity we will close the application window. If you would like to enrol on this course we recommend that you apply as soon as possible in order to secure a place.


We recognise that ideally face to face teaching would be preferred but to enable accessibility to the courses and to continue to offer them for free, the Trainer courses will continue to be delivered via video conferencing for the foreseeable future.
