Our Switch to Online Training

Online Blended Learning

Supporting people to increase their knowledge about gender-based violence and many topics related to violence and abuse has always been a core part of what we do at AVA. This has not changed, even during this time of social distancing and isolation. 

We are still here and we are working hard to move all our training online in a way that makes it accessible to everyone, (no matter where in the world you are!) but also maintains the high quality of learning that we are known for.  

We are happy to announce you can now book for our new online blended training courses. This new way of learning involves a combination of self guided learning and a 3 hour interactive, online training seminar. It offers the best of both worlds – it’s accessible from the comfort of your own home but also allows you to interact with a trainer and other learners to discuss more complex topics. As part of our commitment to quality, we are working to have all our new online blended courses CPD accredited.

We have launched the open online blended training schedule.  Each session will have 15 learners, and all will be hosted on Zoom. We have our normal tiered pricing policy and price are between £50-£70 per course. 

7th May – Domestic Violence Awareness

9th June – Complicated Matters: The Links Between Experiences of Domestic & Sexual Violence, Substance Use and Mental Ill-health

22nd & 25th June – Trauma Informed Practice: A Course for Frontline Workers

7th & 9th July – Becoming Trauma Informed: A Course for Managers

10th September – Children Under 10 and Domestic Violence

We can also run in-house online sessions of these courses for your staff team. We have similarly adjusted our prices, keeping our tiered system to ensure we are afforable for all kinds of organisations. We are also happy to discuss converting any other of our training courses online/ or bespoke options.

Please get in touch through training@avaproject.org.uk and will arrange time and date that works for your team.


Feedback from our pilot online training session

“I thought it worked really well, very glad to have been able to participate. Living outside of London I rarely get to do stuff like this. Please make this the new normal!”

 “I liked it all, it was varied, held my interest and was so useful. Trainer was ace.”

“Logging on worked very well, pre information was good and clear, my first experience of training by Zoom, it was excellent!”

“Logging on was easy – the pre course activites were really helpful in engaging with the topic and were easy to access and complete. I am actually surprised at how much I enjoyed the online experience.”


E-learning Courses

As always, you can access our existing e-learning programmes, which are a great introduction to a topic.
