Dunn&Co have a background in parks and green spaces with tutors and consultants qualified under the old Institute of Parks and Recreation Diploma. Having been through ILAM and ISPAL and IPGS membership unfortunately the relevant institutes have now all disappeared. Dunn&Co are still providing training relevant to Parks and Green Space Managers. If you are interested in any of these just call on 0144 348 6405 or e-mail rondunn.co@btinternet.com and training can be arranged. If you would like more detail on any of the workshops then give us a call.

We now have staff qualified as  City and Guilds A1 assessors and as City and Guilds NPTC assessors, able to train and assess in a wide range of skills. Our partnership with Myerscough College is on-going and our training is broadly endorsed or certificated direct by the College.

Here is the range of training currently being provided or developed in conjunction with our training partners all of which is specifically geared directly towards Parks and Green Space staff with the aim to provide staff that are flexible with a broad range of skills.
