ACVO has partnered with the Skills Network to offer you the opportunity to explore new skills and learning opportunities. Your learning and development at work is important and we want to encourage you to make the best use of new opportunities.

These courses are fully funded by the Scottish Funding Council, meaning there is no cost to you. To access them all you need to do is complete an application form once you have decided which course suits your needs. You can apply for up to seven courses each year and once you have completed your course you will receive your certificate.

Courses cover diverse topics such Allergy Awareness; Awareness of Mental Health Problems; Certificate In Counselling Skills; Certificate in Event Planning; Certificate in Falls Prevention Awareness; Digital Marketing; Equality and Diversity; Principles of Dementia Care; Understanding Autism and much more!

You can complete as many courses as you like, at a time and place that suits you. However, one course must be completed before you start another.
