Barod can provide a wide range of training, education and awareness-raising to professionals who work with substance users and those affected by substance misuse.
As well as great value ‘ready to run’ courses that you can commission for your organisation or group (see the list below), we also specialise in developing bespoke training in many topics related to substance misuse. Our courses are built to fit in with the needs of the trainees, and we can adapt one of the training courses below or develop a training course specifically for you.
Throughout the year, Barod runs a number of open courses where you can book on to learn something new with us.
New courses will be advertised on social media and via an open course programme.
Some of our teams provide free training to professionals as part of their commissioned service specification. These are organised within the locality so please check the service near you to find out what, if anything, is available. You can find details of your local services on the Where to get help page
We also offer free eLearning courses focusing on issues relating to substance misuse.
