Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we will not be scheduling any face-to-face training until it is safe to do so.
We currently are offering training via Zoom in partnership with Devon Communities Together. See below for upcoming courses.
Citizens Advice Devon Training
Citizens Advice Devon seeks to offer high quality, professional and relevant training on benefits and other money matters.
Universal Credit started being rolled out across Devon in 2018. This new benefit replaces six existing benefits for people on low incomes and will affect thousands of families, people with an illness or disability and other people on low incomes in Devon. Book on to our training to keep up to date with the changes and find out what these changes mean for you or the people you support.
Our training for external organisations is now delivered in partnership with Devon Communities Together and advertised on the Devon Communities Together Learning Academy.
Information is available from the Learning Academy at Devon Communities Together and you can book via the links on their site or the links below for any of our courses (these links take you to Eventbrite, an external booking site).
You can also contact email@example.com to request notifications of new courses as they are added.
We also offer tailor-made training for organisations. To discuss your requirements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are currently running some of our training online via the Zoom platform.

Free Training Resources during the Coronavirus pandemic
During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we are offering some free training materials on the benefits and other financial support available to different groups of people. Below are a series of factsheets, updated in 2021. We hope also to shortly provide updated detailed presentations to accompany them.
Training materials last updated: 1 Feb 2021
Other support for local businesses
Eligible businesses based in Devon, Torbay, Plymouth and Somerset can now access a fully funded one to one advice session with a business adviser through the Heart of the South West Growth Hub.
The Covid-19 Business Recovery Support service gives you an opportunity to discuss the impact of coronavirus on your business, explore various actions to support your business with adaption, resilience and recovery options.
Following the session, you will be provided with a support plan detailing practical next steps and identifying further sources of support and guidance as appropriate.
