Delivery Options:

On-Site Training

Does your organization need to provide training for program staff, a multi-disciplinary team or the whole organization? Do you want to address a specific training need or to implement a new approach or model? Onsite training can address specific training needs for larger groups and sessions can be tailored to meet the specific needs of frontline staff and management.

Community-Based Training

Some agencies like the benefits of in-service training but don't have enough staff to merit the cost. If your agency would like to host training in your community or share the cost with other agencies, Safeguards can help co-ordinate training to meet your specific need

Online Training

Mindfulness Everyday offers some online training in order to make Professional Development as easily accessible as possible to every community. Save time and money and train from the comfort of your home or office. Participants benefit from a comprehensive education, plentiful resources, and on-going discussion with peers and trainer
