NAIRO provides high quality, affordable training and consultancy for IROs and allied professionals working with looked after children.

Our training addresses key practice issues to ensure IROs are well prepared to support young people as they navigate the variety and complexity of life.

Our training is provided by highly experienced IROs and leading figures from the field.  We include elements of case-work to ensure it can be immediately relevant to current professional practice.

We offer a range of off the peg training for individuals looking to support their continuing professional learning and development (CPD) and at an extremely competitive rate.

Our trainers are also available to design and deliver bespoke training to organisations.  Please contact us to discuss your organisation’s individual requirements.

We are currently developing our training programme for 2019. We are collaborating with Edge Hill University in developing this program. We will publish the programme on the website as soon as it is available
