Bavs Training Programmes

Bavs supports the development of the third sector in Berwickshire. Our programmes are for volunteers, staff and trustees from third sector organisations. Although priority is given to the third sector in Berwickshire, we welcome participants from outwith the county and from other sectors.

You can book the events below by clicking on the title and following the link to our Eventbrite booking system.

Because of the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, our training programmes and events are being moved online.  We are working on this now and will announce upcoming courses as they become available.

If you are interested in particular courses such as Health and Safety for small and charitable organisations, first aid, running effective meetings, charities accounting and assertiveness, or any others, please get in touch with a request.  Email
