Taking action on smoking and health
ASH Scotland is offering training designed to equip workers with knowledge skills and confidence to better support parents/carers to protect their children from second-hand smoke (SHS) and provide strategies to assist them.
This training fits in with the Scottish Government's 'Take it right outside' campaign and the GIRFEC principles of helping to keep children safe, healthy, respected and nurtured. The training also fits with protecting children's rights, improving their life chances and other key outcomes of the Scottish Government Early Years & Child Poverty Strategies.
In addition participants who complete the training will be given access to resources and activities that can be used in parenting groups or parent seminars.
This training is designed for staff, paid or unpaid, whose role involved supporting families with children under five. This will encompass family support workers, befrienders, home/school link workers and early year staff from both voluntary and local authority based organisations.
Everyone who completes the training will have access to a trainer’s pack of activities and resources. The pack has been specifically designed for use in parent sessions or parent classes (see pack preview). Once practitioners complete the Children, Carers and Second-hand Smoke training, they will have acquired the applicable knowledge to deliver these parent sessions/classes and have free, pre-launch access to the pack, additional resources and optional trainer support prior to using it with parents.
In addition, we have a Training for Trainers session on 31st May 2017 for anyone who has been unable to attend the training prior to the end of the funding of this project.
The training is funded until the end of May 2017, so if you would like to book a session for an organisation or staff team (of 6 or more) before the end of the funding, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to attend or arrange any of the training days before the end of the funding, please join us for the Training for Trainers session. The morning session will be a condensed version of the full training day and the afternoon will be spent discussing and guiding you through the trainers pack mentioned above. Previous participant who attended the full day training are welcome to attend the afternoon portion of the Training for Trainers, if they wish.
The details are as follows:
Date and time: 31st May 2017, 09:30 - 16:30
Venue: ASH Scotland, Edinburgh
