Health Improvement Training
Health Improvement Training Programme
Welcome to the 2013-2014 Health Improvement Training Programme. Managed by NHS Fife's Health Promotion Service on behalf of Fife's Health and Wellbeing Alliance, the programme aims to provide workers with the skills and knowledge to take forward Fife's health improvement agenda.
Informed by local and national health improvement priorities as well as a wide reaching local training needs assessment, we are pleased to announce several new courses in this edition of the programme. These include: Understanding Health Literacy, Welfare Reform: What You Need to Know, Using Asset Based Approaches to Improve Health and Wellbeing, Are You Ready? - Supporting Young People to Delay Early Sexual Activity and Scotland's Mental Health First Aid – Young People.
With the challenges we face to reduce health inequalities, these courses all aim to support the key themes and outcome areas set out in Fife's Health and Wellbeing Plan – to create equal health and wellbeing across all communities. The courses are free to attend and open to all public and voluntary sector workers and volunteers.
The training programme uses a partnership approach with course trainers coming from a range of organisations such as NHS Fife, Fife Council, Frae Fife, Clued Up and Frontline Fife. This ensures that local knowledge and expertise is brought to the courses on offer and is crucial to the successful delivery of the programme.

We hope you find the programme useful and look forward to working with you in the coming months.
