Training

You can access taster training and self-directed courses as part of the Co-production Network for Wales’ provision for the community of practice. (More details here.)

However, if you’re looking for in-house training that is more in-depth, bespoke to your context and needs, and will enable your team to learn and develop together, we offer a training suite of tools and techniques that we have found to be effective in supporting a robust co-production practice. 

All our training sessions are delivered online via Zoom or Teams, and they can be recorded for your internal use. Online sessions offer a cost-effective and travel-light option to attend with colleagues from different locations; but if you require in-person training, please get in touch for a quote: contactus@coprolab.wales

“Thank you so much for yesterday’s training. Your enthusiasm, expert knowledge and ability to then effectively transfer that to your audience is impressive, especially in a digital space which can be challenging.
