CO3 Training Passport

We all understand the importance of a well trained workforce. We operate within a sector that is continually improving in areas such a governance, management and performance all within a wider socio-economic context.

CO3 as a member driven organisation strives to improve the networking and training options that we offer our network.
We have and will continue to develop our networking and event schedule for 2021 but understand that the financial constraints are tighter than ever on third sector organisations and the importance of regular training for yourself and management teams can be very easily overlooked.
As a result we have have developed our CO3 Training passport


Our Training Passports are valid for 24 months and can be used by more than one person in your organisation. Passports can be topped up throughout this period, unlocking additional discounts.

A CO3 Training Passport allows each organisation to stretch their training budget further.  Purchase your Training Passport and receive more training than ever during 2021. Find out more about our Training Passports by clicking here or email our Membership Services Manager Suzanne at suzanne@co3.bz
