Further ISVA Development Programme dates to be announced shortly

Due to the demand for our Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) Development Programme, LimeCulture is planning to run a further course later in the year.

We are currently finalising the dates  for the course and we will announce these in the next few weeks (It is likely that this course will run between September 2013 and March 2014 to remain within this financial year). We are aware that some ISVAs had found the locations where the ISVA Development Programme has been held in the past to be difficult to get to, so we are open to suggestions of locations and are very happy to send our trainers to a location that suits the majority of ISVAs wishing to attend the training. Obviously we cannot please everyone (otherwise we would try!) but we are open to suggestions of locations.

These further dates are in response to ISVA Services telling us that they are recruiting new ISVAs who will not be in place to join our next (4th) course that begins in June 2013. Great news that there are more ISVAs to join the workforce! All of our courses have a maximum number of delegates, so early bookings are recommended. Please contact info@limeculture.co.uk to reserve a place on the Autumn ISVA Development Programme.

The Autumn ISVA Development Programme will be the 5th time that LimeCulture has run specialist ISVA Training since September 2011. We have already trained over 60 ISVAs and hope to work with a good many more over the coming years as this important workforce increases to meet the need to provide high-qaulity support for victims of sexual violence across every part of the UK.

The next ISVA Development Programme will begin in  June 2013. Further information and dates can be found by clicking here. We currently have a few places available on that course, so if you would like to book a place on the June-December 2013 ISVA Development Programme, please contact info@limeculture.co.uk
