Learning and development


Please be aware that we are currently experiencing technical issues with our A-Z catalogue of courses, and our full portfolio of available courses is currently not updating.

If you know the name of the course you wish to attend then an alternative way to book on to a session is to log into your personal Trent account and search for a course by selecting the learning tab on the left-hand side of the screen.

We do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to have the issue resolved shortly.
