Advanced courses



We offer two paths for alumni of the Partnership Brokers Training: Advanced Practice for partnership brokering, a 5-day course designed to build further confidence and competence in managing partnership brokering interventions, and the Accreditation programme, a 4-month distance learning course with a mentor focusing on reflective practice. To explore which option would best suit your learning needs please get in touch.


Established in 2003, the PBA’s Accreditation Programme is the internationally recognised vocational qualification for those whose professional focus is on building more effective, impactful and transformative partnering approaches in a systematic, principled and ethical way.
Accreditation is for experienced practitioners, not beginners, but there are now a range of possible entry points leading to enrolment. The programme is personalised to meet each individual‘s priorities and needs so s/he is enabled to derive maximum value from the experience.
Achieving Accreditation involves a 4-month period of mentored practice with a highly experienced partnership broker, followed by a submission of a written, video or audio final project that will be formally assessed to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
