TDI has over 25 years of working with organisations who work with sexual offenders, including prisons, housing associations, churches and faith-based groups, rape crisis centres, homeless organisations, health and social care providers, arts organisations and those working with learning disabilities.
For organisations with over 10 trainees, we design courses specific to your needs, drawing on our large bank of topics and material developed in partnership with clients over decades. Where there are topics we don’t already cover, our training and research teams are able to prepare new material for you.
Courses are interactive, delivered by one of TDI’s expert trainers, either remotely or face-to-face, at a time to suit you. All courses come with workbooks and additional supporting material, and can incorporate worked examples or case studies from your day-to-day work.
You may want to combine training with consultancy around your procedures or policies.
