NSCB Face to Face Training Guides

Frequently asked questions about training courses:

Do the courses cost anything? 

The courses are free to all NSCB members including voluntary sector and not-for-profit organisations. The NSCB has a budget for training which is made up of financial contributions by partner agencies. For all profit making organisations please contact the NSCB Business Office for advice and charges on 01604 364036 or e-mail NSCB@northamptonshire.gov.uk.

Will I automatically get a place on the course I've applied for?

All courses are booked on a 'first come first served' basis. The NSCB does reserve the right to cancel any bookings to ensure the training has a sufficient multi-agency focus.

What happens if I have to cancel my place on a course?

See the course cancellations policy.

Can I nominate another colleague to go in my place?

Yes – Although we prefer you to cancel the place a colleague can attend in your place. If you wish for a colleague to attend in your place it is your responsibility to inform the trainer and sign in on the attendance sheet. You will also need to inform the NSCB Business Office via e-mail nscb@northamptonshire.gov.uk to ensure they are sent an evaluation request and certificate.

Will my name be put on a waiting list if the course is fully booked?

Yes, you will be contacted if a place becomes available.

If more than one person from my team applies for the same course, will we all get a place?

Not necessarily as we have a responsibility to ensure that all courses have a balanced spread of agencies and roles.

Why does my manager need to know I'm attending a training course?

You need your manager's permission to attend all NSCB courses to ensure that s/he is in agreement and that the course will contribute towards your professional development.
