The Money Advice team run quarterly staff training on the following topics. The sessions are aimed at front line staff who are dealing with Bolton residents who are struggling financially. If you are interested in any of the courses below, contact us on 01204 332916 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also looking to develop online training for staff to access remotely.
We are sometimes able to offer staff training to organisations outside of Bolton though this may incur a charge and is subject to how busy the service is.
