How is the training delivered?

Training is delivered in a participative and interactive style which involves a variety of methods. These range from presentations to group work and discussion sessions. Participants are encouraged to draw on and share their own practical experience and to consider how they would apply learning from the training courses to their professional practice. Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds, which enhances the sharing and learning experience.

Who delivers the training?

Course trainers come from a wide range of organisations in Fife including Fife Council, NHS Fife and voluntary sector organisations such as Clued Up, Barony Housing Association, Frae Fife and Fife Alcohol Support Service. This partnership approach ensures that local knowledge and expertise is brought to our training courses and is crucial to the successful delivery of the Health Improvement Training Programme.

What does it cost to attend?

Unless otherwise stated, all training courses in the programme are free and open to staff and volunteers from the public and voluntary sectors in Fife. Staff members from workplaces affiliated with the Healthy Working Lives project are also welcome to attend.
