Gain new skills and meet some great people in our campaigns training.

We’re offering a course of ten free training sessions focusing on subjects including campaign skills, working with your local MPs and councilors and organising your own events. 

The sessions are open to everyone and you can attend as few or as many as you would like – whether that’s just one session or all ten.
