“As a commissioner of CSE training I have been very impressed with the quality of delivery from BASIS. The fact that the trainers are practitioners results in appropriate and robust challenge to training participants. The urgency with which colleagues implement their learning has enabled Children’s Services to improve standards of care for vulnerable young people.”
Lisa Banton, Practice Development and Partnership Training Lead, (Leeds Children’s Services Workforce Development Team)

Child Friendly Leeds

Basis Training is proud to be a partner in child friendly Leeds. We want Leeds to be the best place to grow up in the whole of the UK. To help make this happen, the city is bringing schools, businesses, voluntary organisations, families and individuals together to make Leeds a child friendly city. In a child friendly Leeds, children and young people are valued, supported, enjoy growing up, and look forward to a bright future. Children and young people’s views are listened to and acted on, and they can make a difference in their school, their community and the city as a whole.
