Training Opportunities

Training Opportunities Image

Our training provides learners with the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in health and community related subjects.

The wellbeing for life trainers provide a Training Opportunities Calendar (www.hits.cdd.nhs.uk) which varies regularly to provide an exciting and comprehensive learning programme for professionals, volunteers and community members.

We offer training to develop you such as leadership skills or the skills to improve resilience (how to cope with the pressures of life). You may be interested in developing skills to support your community by utilising Asset Based Approaches, Volunteer Walk Leader Training or to offer brief advice through Make Every Contact Count.

We always offer the Royal Society for Public Health Level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement.  This national qualification provides the foundation knowledge around health inequalities and the wider determinants of health.

We offer a range of accredited and non-accredited FREE training courses in local venues such as:

  • Asset Based Approaches to Community Development
  • Leadership Skills
  • Brief Intervention Cancer
  • Building Resilience to Change
  • Five Ways to wellbeing
  • RSPH Level 2 in Understanding Health Improvement (2 days)
  • OCN Level 2 Health Trainers (2 days)
  • Making Every Contact Count
  • Motivational Interviewing (1 day)
  • NOCN Level 2 Understanding Nutrition & Weight Management (2 days)
  • Mental Health First Aid

Our trainers are friendly, approachable and supportive and will help you to get the most out of your learning experience. Our training sessions are welcoming and fun and who knows where all this learning may take you, anything is possible.
