Helping with your staff training and development in the 'new normal'

Online training for our new working world, in the age of Covid-19

As 2020 draws nearer to a close, the future of working life is uncertain. The only thing we know for sure is that working practices will be different for the foreseeable future – and perhaps forever.


Civicos Training is one of  the leading providers of Third Sector training in Scotland. As such, we have given much thought as to how we can provide the best possible practical advice and information for organisations trying to get back to some sort of normality.


We have talked over the past months with sector leaders, with staff members, with key funders and with our own trainers, and this has led us to develop a series of online training courses that we think will provide the different sorts of supports that you need.


Our online sessions will each last between two to three and a half hours. Courses that are normally seven hours will run over two half days. We have grouped our online courses under five headings, each covering an important aspect of the Covid-19 experience. Over the coming months we will use these headings to build more and more online courses:

The New Normal: Mental and Physical Wellbeing

The New Normal: The Practicalities of Returning to Work

The New Normal: Working with Clients

The New Normal: Working Together

The New Normal: What Have We Learned?

Our courses are offered as open sessions (where anyone can sign up) so that you can share the learning and share experiences with people from different organisations.


We also offer most of the courses as a bespoke session for your own organisation, where up to twelve of your staff can come together to take part in the learning.
