POSTPONED - Professional Certificate in Coordinating Mentoring Programmes Training Course

**It is with regret that SMN has decided to postpone this week’s Professional Certificate in Co-ordinating Mentoring Projects (PCCMP) training course.

We have had a few call-offs due to attendees following advice from their own organisations re travelling and attending external meetings. Please be assured that we have taken the decision to postpone as a precautionary measure.

We will be in touch with a re-scheduled date as soon as we can. Over the next week will be looking into the potential of delivering this course using a combination of video conferencing and online resources and will keep you updated on this development as soon as we can.

We hope that you understand and that we have not caused any undue inconvenience. If you have any questions I will be back in work tomorrow so can answer anything then.**


We are running our three-day training course for those who coordinate or manage mentoring programmes within an organisation. The first two days will take place on Thursday the 19th and Friday the 20th of March and the date for the third day will be set at a mutually agreed date, scheduled during the course.  The training will be held at Brunswick House, 51 Wilson Street, Glasgow.
