Latest news

The new training resources have now been in use for over 2 years and feedback has been very good. The education materials have just been updated (in Jan 2018) & wider children's workforce version in Aug 2017. In addition, we have changed the way accredited trainers access these; in January 2018 you should have received a log-in and password to enable you to download the resources directly from the 'services' page on this website (along with a control sheet so you can quickly see what changes we have made). If you have not received an email from LFF with a password, please contact us. New trainers are also given a password once they have completed the T4T course and returned their signed trainer agreement. 

Trainers previously accredited by NCSL, CWDC or the Lucy Faithfull Foundation can still access these by registering with LFF - contact by email at training@lucyfaithfull.org.uk Once you have completed a registration form and submitted this along with a copy of your T4T certificate, you will be sent a copy of the Trainers' Code of Conduct to sign and the materials will be yours soon after.
