If you have experience of developing and delivering activities in a community setting, or knowledge of what it takes to run a voluntary organisation, community group or social enterprise (VCSE), this could be the role for you.

VAAC Training and Events Survey 2021

2020 was a year not like any other and at VAAC our training had to adapt and go on line whilst still delivering what you asked for.

We are in the process of looking at the training schedule for April 2021 to March 2022 and need your help to shape what this will look like.

We would appreciate you taking the time to complete our survey which will take no more than 5 minutes – your feedback is important to us.

We will be sending this out via our members mailing list but please feel free to share to others in your organisation.
