Health Issues in the Community - tutor training

Health and social inclusion policy developments have resulted in an increase in initiatives that target health inequalities and community involvement in health. Health Issues in the Community (HIIC) is a training programme aimed at increasing community capacity, increasing community participation, and establishing / consolidating community development approaches to tackling inequalities in health

The 2 day HIIC Tutor Training course is a SQA credit rated course, 8 points at level 7, and aims to equip participants to deliver credit rated Health Issues in the Community training to a wide variety of people in a broad range of settings. 

Applicants should have a reasonable knowledge of community development and/or delivering training in a community setting.  The Tutor Training gives participants an opportunity to find out about the pack content, how to use it, the learning methods that are used and the expectations/responsibilities of tutors. The Tutor Training course usually takes place twice a year but can be commissioned by organisations wishing to train a significant number of staff.
