Train the Trainer: Peer Support Project

The Proud Trust will tell you the secrets of their successful peer support project, helping you set up your own LGBT+ inclusive service at this workshop on Tuesday 20 November 2018, 9.30am-3.30pm at YHA Manchester.

The Proud Trust has run an effective and successful Peer Support Project for many years. Peer support models work on the idea that non-professionals (in this case young people) can provide flexible social, emotional and practical support to one another through their personal knowledge and experiences. This type of service can complement and enhance existing provision.

This one day training course will:
• Increase participant confidence, encouraging delegates to start and maintain Peer Support Projects in their own settings;
• Offer a comprehensive set of resources that can be shared with Peer Supporters, that help build healthier lifestyle choices in their supportees;
• Develop the skills to support Peer Supporters, to enhance and maintain their own well-being;
• Gives tools to empower Peer Supporters to care for themselves effectively.

Participants on this course will go away with a comprehensive Train the Trainer: Peer Support Pack (not available without training), which may be used directly to set up a Peer Support Project, or adapted to support the development of other peer or youth-led initiatives, such as young people working on campaigns, or setting up and running of a support group.

Cost £125* per delegate *RAINBOW FLAG AWARD member schools £100 per delegate, enter your discount code at the point of booking. This course will give you the skills and resources to better meet the standards in the blue Pastoral Support and purple Pupil Voice sections.
