UK Events & Training

We're very excited to announce our new training stream!

As Breakthrough grows and expands, the requests we receive for training keep on increasing. So we've made some changes. As well as our one-off training courses on a variety of subjects, Breakthrough’s 1-year training course (for those looking to expand their knowledge on trauma and build on their practical skills in supporting survivors) will now be run as individual courses across the year. 

This means that people can dip in and out of the training and participate in the topics most relevant to them, or redo them as refreshers!
And our main training on Trauma Awareness and Trauma First-Aid will now be running twice a year. 

All 3 of our first training dates of the year will be run in Bath!
Here's all the info you need to book in!
