AVA Training


Originally called the CVS Training Initiative, the AVA Training project was established to offer small and medium sized community and voluntary groups high quality, affordable, accessible and relevant training. We work in partnership with Community and voluntary organisations so that they  may strengthen their capabilities and efficiency through accessing a quality programme of training.

The project offers a comprehensive year-round open programme, which can be accessed by community groups, voluntary organisations, public sector staff, interested individuals and small businesses. We also offer a bespoke training service to cater for specific requirements.

Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action Training is a Branded Learning Centre with ILA (Individual Learning Account) registered provider status. Thisila-scotland means that individuals earning £22,000 a year or less, or who are in receipt of any benefits, may qualify for an Individual Learning Account to pay for their learning. AVA Training represents the voluntary sector on two multi-disciplinary groups with the remit of training and CPD for staff: the North Alliance and the North East Scotland Public Sector Development Group. Our involvement in these groups has widened access to a range of training and continuous development opportunities for voluntary and community sector groups across the area.
