This project coordinates, develops and commissions training for community members on behalf of all the Well London projects.
Training is a theme that links all the Well London projects. It gives local residents the skills to participate in other Well London projects, and provides opportunities for them to gain qualifications and for personal development.
In phase 1 of Well London Training Communities provided the following training opportunities:
Training for Well London Delivery TeamsDelivery team volunteers received the Royal Society for Public Health Level 2 training in Health Promotion. Many volunteers used the qualification to train as health champions and to gain employment.
Youth.Com TrainingThe Young Ambassadors received accredited training in working with young people and gained the skills to work as part of the Youth.Com project.
Training in Community ActivationThis was an intensive four day training course for residents from the Well London areas who volunteered as Community Activators. The training led to a NVQ level 2 qualification. The training prepared the Community Activators to introduce other local residents to regular and appropriate physical activity.
Personal Support PackagesThis funded training for individuals in the target areas. It was very flexible and people could choose the training they wanted to do.
