Voluntary Sector Training or VST was established in 1999 thanks to a Lottery grant to provide training in Uttlesford and merged with Community360 on 1st September 2017. Since then, VST has continued to expand its offer and reach.

From management and organisational skills, to marketing, fundraising, social media, practical skills, minibus training, wellbeing and personal development, VST exists to meet the training needs of the voluntary sector. VST has a vast bank of excellent trainers to call upon to deliver their courses. Their skillset is so wide that practically any voluntary sector training need can be met.

Training is accessible for all sizes of charities and community groups, or even commercial organisations, and pricing is tiered according to organisational income. Half day, full day and two day accredited and non-accredited courses run regularly all over Essex and beyond for staff, volunteers, trustees and committee members. Alternatively, courses can be tailored to any charity’s needs and delivered in-house.

VST have their own separate site where you can view courses, make bookings, download brochures, make contact and find out the latest news.
