How do I book the free training?
Just complete the booking form as normal and tick the box indicating ‘MAS Face to Face Debt Advice Project’. There is another tick box asking for your permission to share details about your booking with the funders, which is essential for us to obtain the funding. If you don’t give us your permission, you will not be booked onto the free training course.
Can we book free in-house training?
We have secured funding for a number of In-House courses to be delivered between now and the end of March 2019*.
MASDAP organisations can apply for an In-House course and applications will be considered ensuring an equitable distribution of training by geographic and funded region.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request the course you would like from the above list.
*Please note: We have now allocated all of the current MAS funded In-House courses to organisations across England and Wales. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please send your details to email@example.com
