Bespoke Training

DAI responds to requests for bespoke training from community organisations, libraries, parents’ associations, workplace groups, etc. Training can be tailored to the specific needs and interests of each group depending on the location and the time available. Training can also be delivered online. We, unfortunately, do not have the capacity to be able to respond to every request but we try to facilitate as many as possible.

Please contact our national office to discuss your training needs, ideally a month or two in advance of your preferred training date. A fee is usually charged for this service to recover any costs incurred (such as staff time, travel, photocopying, etc.)

For details on upcoming talks, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter as all public events and talks are shared there. We also have many recorded talks and information sessions available on our YouTube channel.
