Bespoke training – training requests from the community sector, government or others can be tailored. This is usually either:
- Adaptation of normal training, requiring minimal development time, or
- Development of a new training package requiring more development time.
In either case training is oriented to the specific needs and requirements of the client/service and developed in consultation.
ATODA may also organise other types of training, e.g., webinars with a standard presentation followed by question-and-answer session, according to demand and by mutual agreement with the Senior Training Specialist (STS).
Please note: ATODA does not provide training to young people or schools/parent programs.
