Ni Residents Academy

Our Ni Residents Academy has been set up to deliver training for our customers and has three main aims:

  • Map and record the skills of customers within our neighbourhoods and create a skill bank that will enhance involvement opportunities
  • Develop a co-ordinated approach around the use and provision of customers skills in the neighbourhood
  • Work with tenants and residents to provide them with the necessary tools and the opportunity to enhance their skills through accreditation and volunteering

Our new 2012-13 programme is available to view below.  Have a look and tell us what you think!

We have put together a list of 'frequently asked questions' which we hope will answer your queries - the FAQs also explain how to book onto our courses.

Our Residents Expenses Policy can be viewed on this page.

For details of what other events are currently taking place, take a look at either the Merseyside Activity Calendar or the Cheshire Activity Calendar.
