You can join the SCTP as either a partner associate or a commercial associate member. A commercial associate member works with SCTP and our members through offering a commercial service, giving you the opportunity to build your network and promote your products and services to a very specific target audience – training providers. A partner associate member works with SCTP and our members at a strategic level or through delivering services in a non-commercial partnership.
We are all about helping our members grow. We do this by promoting what you do and creating opportunities for you to grow, network and promote yourself.
Promote your services online
- Feature in our latest news and in our weekly email newsletter when you join.
