The ILP in no way endorses the quality of the courses but invites you to make your own enquiries as to whether what is offered matches your requirements. This page aims to structure the training available and to act as a directory.

Lastly you will notice that some headings have no resource provided within. This page is a living resource and the ILP invites all who care about the training of our design community to get involved. Please contact Rebecca Hines, ILP Skills Portal Coordinator if you have a suggestion or can help.
