All Durham University students are invited to attend our training weekends.

Regardless of whether you’re considering volunteering for Nightline, training for welfare, or simply just interested in improving your listening skills, we encourage you to attend the weekend.

There is a training weekend each term, held in October, February, and June.

The weekend will consist of a series of talks given by experts in their field, such as depression, anxiety, suicide, loss and bereavement, and identity. These talks are accompanied by group workshops where we use role-plays to practice listening skills. Both Durham and Queens students are welcomed.

Look out for a sign-up email next term about our next training weekend which will be held after Exams in June 2018. Details of how to sign-up will be given below nearer the time.
