In-house Training and CPD

Short Courses and Interactive Workshops


We provide training and CPD for organizations and businesses at their own premises. As well as providing training, the Freire Institute works with organizations on specific community projects. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can provide quotes for the training and level of support you require.

Training at your organization's premises

For organizations wishing to engage us for training, please contact us to discuss your requirements. In addition to our regular training courses, we can adapt courses for your specific needs.

Public courses

Occasionally we a course or event for the general public rather than working with specific organizations. This is typically for introductory or 'taster' courses and fees for these courses vary.


Fees depend on your specific requirements and will include associated costs such as travel and accommodation, where required. We give discounts for charitable and non-profit organizations. Please follow the link below to enquire about training.

Cancellations, Postponements and Amendments

Open Courses: Public training courses are those where we invite open bookings from individuals for a course or event organized by the Freire Institute. You may cancel your booking up to 14 days before the event without incurring any cost.

All Other Courses: The following conditions apply for courses arranged with organizations:

Cancellations: You may cancel your booking up to 14 days before the course date and we will refund your fee less a 10 per cent administrative charge. Cancellations made within 14 days of the event will not be refunded.
Postponements: Postponements of courses are accepted up to 14 days before the course date without incurring additional costs. Courses postponed after to the 14 day cut-off period will incur additional costs equal to the full cost of trainers, plus any unrecoverable costs associated with the original course booking. Postponed courses must be re-scheduled for delivery within six months of the original date, otherwise the course will be regarded as cancelled and no refund will be made.
Amendments: We do not make administrative charges for minor amendments to bookings but reserve the right to charge for any unrecoverable costs that have been incurred.

We reserve the right to alter the published programme, venue or course fee or to cancel an event at our discretion, in which case our liability will be restricted only to any fees paid to us.
