Impact Resources

Here is an overview of Impact Resources. If you need more then you can check out the more generic BVSC Resources page and the Impact in Action Useful Links page. You are also welcome to contact the Impact Officer, Karen Jefferys. Where it says below, 'Please see slides' then if you went on the training, you should have been sent slides.

Microtraining

Micro training sessions are often done during our network or forums meetings. They are 10 minute shots of information and ideas. They will not cover every detail that you need to know, but they will hopfully help to give you some pointers. If these sessions inspire you to sign up to some of our other training then check out our training sessions here and/or request training from Karen on all things Impact.
