Tailored Training: Structure & Pricing

Supporting and building the capacity of local groups is what PAVO is here for, so we would love to work together with you on developing a training programme to serve the needs of your team, volunteers or community.



We have two tiers in our Tailored Training offer:

  • Our existing Portfolio Courses, which have been designed to meet the needs of a range of organisations at different levels of experience, and which we can deliver for your team at a date and place convenient to you. 

  • And our fully Tailored Courses, which are designed to suit the background, motivations and learning needs of a particular cohort of participants.

Our courses are pitched differently for different audiences, from our 'Essentials' courses, aimed at the new and emerging community groups to equip them with the core skills in a particular topic; to our 'Development' courses which take a more strategic view of topics to help embed skills and best practice in organisations.

We also have different length sessions for different contexts, which varies the depth to which each session can explore the topics:

  • Half-Day Workshop (of 3.5 hours); or
  • Full-Day Course (of 6 hours).
  • We can also offer 2-day course pairings that have some element of progression, Taster sessions of up to 2 hours, or whatever other arrangement suits you.



Amongst the topics in our current Portfolio are:

  • Fundraising Applications & Strategy
  • Social Media & Marketing
  • Safeguarding
  • Governance
  • Trustee Roles & Responsibilities
  • Recruiting and Managing Volunteers
  • Reaching & Including Welsh Speakers
  • Business & Strategic Planning
  • Team Building & Managing Staff
  • Finance Essentials for Small Organisations


If you don't see what you need in the above list, talk to us about developing a Tailored course for your team.

Examples of recent course topics include:

  • 'Person-Centred Stakeholder Engagement'
  • 'Measuring the Impact of Your Work'
  • 'Creating a Resilient Organisation'
  • 'How to Find Great Volunteers & Make Them Feel Valued'

As you can see, as with our open training programme, there is a significant discount from being a PAVO Member.

Becoming a member is easy and free, and open to all non-profit organisations within Powys. So, if your organisation is not already a member, do consider joining us by following this link: https://www.pavo.org.uk/about-pavo/join-pavo.html

We have to charge a competitive fee for our Tailored Training to help cover our costs and subsidise our open training programme. However, PAVO is here to serve the Third Sector in Powys and we recognise that Tailored / In-House training can make a signifcant difference to smaller organisations. 

So if the pricing above goes beyond your budget - do please get in touch to see if we can negotiate a fee within your price range.
