We are currently finalising plans for our 2022-23 courses, taking place from April 2022 onwards.

Check back here later to find out more about what we are offering. We will also be contacting our mailing list with the offer as soon as it is available. If you would like to be included on our mailing list, so that you can be kept up to date with our courses and to be notified of other aspects of the Surrey Skills Academy, please contact: surreyskillsacademy@surreycc.gov.uk.

Terms and conditions for attending our courses

Please read the below before booking on any of our courses.

For all courses, we expect our attendees to fully engage with the course in order to get the most out of the time. Where courses are run virtually, we require all attendees to use their camera and microphone. We will only send certification out to attendees after the trainer has confirmed with us that they have fully engaged with the content and met the learning outcomes.

If an attendee is unable to make the session, they must inform us as soon as they possibly can. Contact surreyskillsacademy@surreycc.gov.uk to arrange for places to be cancelled. This allows us to free up a space for someone else to book. Failure to inform us of non-attendance will result in your organisation being charged £35. These will be organised in bulk per quarter.

Although we offer these courses to you free of charge, we are still required to pay our training providers and venues out of Surrey County Council's adult social care budget. We also put a lot of time into planning, arranging and administrating this service. Please work with us to make sure that we can demonstrate the benefits and the effectiveness. We are always looking to improve the Surrey Skills Academy offer, so please do get in touch with any suggestions you might have on surreyskillsacademy@surreycc.gov.uk
