Multi-agency training allows staff from different organisations to learn together and strengthens understanding amongst partners.  To achieve a good multi-agency mix at each session, it would be helpful, where an organisation may have numerous staff wanting to attend a course, if attendance could be spread across a number of sessions.

All courses are free of charge to those working within the City of York.
