The Health Promotion Training Team produce an annual programme which features a wide range of free training and is an opportunity to invest in our workforce through up-skilling and providing a space to share, reflect on and develop best practice. To do this we work closely with many of our voluntary and public sector partners to develop and deliver training courses and see it as a great opportunity to share local expertise, knowledge and information. 

Participants 

Training courses are open to all public and voluntary sector workers in Fife as well as staff members from workplaces affiliated with the Health Promotion Workplace team. Participants are encouraged to draw on and share their own experience and consider how they would apply learning from the training to their own professional practice. Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds, which enhances the sharing and learning experience. 

Trainers 

 The majority of our trainers are Fife based workers who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise through the delivery of training. Some courses are supported by national trainers from various services and organisations across Scotland. 

Courses 

 Courses are supported and delivered by various local and national partners. We offer a number of training opportunities to suit everyone’s learning needs, these range from: 

  • Face-to-Face Workshops
  • Virtual Workshops 
  • eLearning Modules 
  • Learning Bytes 
  • Webinars 
  • Learning Hubs

 Unless otherwise stated, all training courses are free of charge.  

Targeted Training  

As well as our core training programme, we can provide additional workshops tailored to the needs of specific teams, services, organisations and/or workplaces. For further information, please contact the training team on: [email protected]  

COVID-19 – Return to Face-to Face Delivery  

As we remobilise and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we will start to return to face-to-face delivery. To ensure this is done in a safe and efficient way, we will have control measures and risk assessments in place for each workshop, which all trainers and participants will be asked to adhere to. To support this we will continue to follow the Scottish Government and NHS Fife COVID-19 guidance, protocols and procedures. 

Many of the face to face workshops on offer had been suspended indefinitely during the pandemic as they were unable to be adapted to be delivered in a digital format. There has been a real demand for these workshops and we are pleased to be able to offer them again, however, it is important to be aware that as part of our control measures, the number of places available on each workshop will be reduced.  

As a Training Team we will do all we can to ensure that Trainers and Participants feel safe and get the most out of each workshop they attend. However, following and adhering to the most up to date guidance will be a continuous process and further safety measures may have to be put in place or workshops postponed or cancelled.
