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.
