|Each programme is designed to meet the needs of the specific group of trainees. It is important that the training is linked to a practical project or task. The workshop program is then devised to fit the task and the practical needs of the trainees.
|For example; in Manchester, one of the tasks was to consult local people about health and well-being issues facing parents of young children. After discussions with trainees we arranged this programme:
- Two days of training which included practical work,
- Trainees carried out more practical work
- Two more days of training which focussed on analysing and cross-checking the practical work,
- More practical work by trainees
- One day for presenting feedback to a local group of workers who were responsible for meeting local health improvement targets and presentations for accreditation.
|In Stirling, we worked with a team of people who were consulting and developing with local people an action plan which would co-ordinate the delivery of health support services to the community. People preferred five consecutive days of workshop and practical opportunities to undertake the consultation exercises and then, some weeks later, two days for reflection, analysis and presentations.
