Commission training
Commission HENRY training

HENRY training is normally commissioned on a ‘training event’ basis, where we come to you and train a group of practitioners. If you would be interested in commission HENRY training, or would like to find out more, please contact our national office on 01865 302973, or email

Book individual places 

HENRY also offers the opportunity to book individual places on HENRY training courses which we deliver in a geographically central location. We normally offer one Core Training, one Group Facilitation Training, and one 1-to-1 training every 6 months.

These trainings are the perfect opportunity to train a small number of staff rather than book a full training event for your area. To book individual places, please contact our national office on 01865 302973, or email
