In-house training – we can come to you

  • Need to know how universal credit will affect single parents in Scotland?
  • Are conditionality and sanctions making life increasingly difficult for your clients?
  • Would receiving child maintenance make a positive impact on the single parent families you work with?
  • Would you or your staff benefit from training on these issues?

OPFS can deliver training on universal credit, conditionality and sanctions and child maintenance to you and your colleagues in your own workplace, cutting out costly travel expenses and valuable time out of the office.

If you are interested in having us come to you and want to know more about course content, please contact our training delivery coordinator Nicky Sugden on 0131 556 3899 or email for more information.
