Training Events - FAQs

Will I receive a certificate?

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at all full day training events, which is based on 85% attendance and active participation.

Can my organisation be invoiced for training fees?

Barnardos will invoice for training when the fee is above €400 e.g. for one supervision training place or multiple training event places at Children First, Child Protection Training or Designated Liaison Person Training.

What if I can’t attend training I have booked?

  • Cancellations within 72 hours will receive a refund.
  • Please call Barnardos Training on 01-4530355 or email training@barnardos.ie if you wish to cancel a booking.

What if I have to cancel Tailored Training?

In order to cancel or postpone a training event, please contact Barnardos Training Coordinator with as much notice as possible so that the trainer can be informed. If you cancel less than one week in advance of the event a charge of 50% will apply. If you need to cancel the event after working hours on the day before the event you should try to contact the trainer directly, either that evening before 8pm or first thing on the morning of the event e.g. anytime from 8am onwards. You should then inform Barnardos Training Coordinator who will follow up with the trainer. If the training event is scheduled for the weekend whoever makes the request should contact the trainer as above and then Barnardos Training Coordinator first thing the following Monday.
