Thirty years of working with people who experience the full depth and breadth of disabilities, has given us the desire to share our knowledge and skills with other professionals. We offer a range of training courses for play practitioners and any organisation interested in disability. 

At The Yard Edinburgh, in partnership with Tailor Ed, we offer a weekly programme of specialist training courses covering autism awareness, dealing with challenging behaviour, disability awareness, communication methods and inclusive play.

Our unique environment and available resources offer participants a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience of developing and demonstrating inclusive play opportunities that carry the stamp of The Yard's very special ethos and approach.

To book your place on a training course, email us or call 0131 476 4506.

Our courses run at The Yard Edinburgh on Thursdays at 9am to 12 noon.

Each course costs £25 per person and is open to everyone. Learn more about our courses.
