Projects and other course providers

If you have a suggestion for training or don't see the course you need, please get in touch with our Information and Training Manager Joan Lyle. We have good links with other publishing training providers and are always happy to work with them to bring training to Scotland. Below are some links to other publishing training providers and training-related projects we are involved in (Accelerate Programme).
