    [Excerpt] Training for Success: A Guide for Peer Trainers is a guide to help villagers, like you, teach others to operate a business like the one you operate. It was developed as part of the ILO project Alleviating Poverty through Peer Training (APPT). The project was designed to reduce poverty among people with disabilities in Cambodia by using village-based peer trainers to teach others. The purpose of this guide is to teach you, a possible peer trainer, how to teach others to replicate your business! The APPT project helped more than 950 people, mostly with disabilities, start businesses over a fi ve-year period. More than 200 peer trainers were involved. Many of the peer trainers also had disabilities. And, since the project paid special attention to women, most of the trainers and trainees were women, some with disabilities, some without. This guide was developed to help train peer trainers and is based on years of ILO experience. It was field-tested as part of a series of workshops for peer trainers conducted by the APPT project in the provinces of Siem Reap, Kompong Thom and Pursat in 2007. Training for Success: A Guide for Peer Trainers will be used by people like yourself who are already peer trainers or who want to start training others. Ideally, it should be used as part of a workshop that teaches you how to be a peer trainer

    Get PDF
    Although the health of the UK population has improved significantly over the last century, inequalities in health still exist, with some of Britain’s biggest killers being ‘preventable’ illnesses. The 2004 white paper ‘Choosing Health: Making Healthy Choices Easier’ aimed to introduce initiatives to reduce inequalities in health. One such initiative was ‘Health Trainers’ – a new role staffed by individuals drawn from and based in deprived areas. This role aimed to offer people in deprived communities practical advice about health improvement, and to facilitate access to health services This report aims to examine the impact of introducing the ‘New Futures Health Trainer’ role into criminal justice settings in terms of: a) Training for the Health Trainer Tutors/the development of the Health Trainer training course b) The impact of the training on the New Futures Health Trainers c) The organisational consequences of the role d) The impact of New Futures Health Trainers on clinical outcomes for prisoners/offenders on probation, and e) A brief examination of the relationship between ‘early adopter’ sites for Health Trainers in the community, and the prison/probation equivalen

    Objective: To investigate how trainers perceived the vocational training programme in family medicine in Hong Kong. Design: Structured discussion with trainers who had trainees in the community-based segment of the vocational training programme of the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians. Subjects: Forty seven eligible trainers were identified and invited to attend the discussion. Thirteen trainers participated in two structured discussions. Main outcome measures: The opinions expressed by the participants towards the vocational training programme. Results: The response rate was 27.7%. The trainers were clear about their roles but saw an overlap between their functions and those of the trainees' supervisors. They were unsure on what to teach and how to teach, and looked for guidance from the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians. They felt that there should be more varied training methods, more resources at training centres, better training arrangements and more coordination among training stakeholders. Some trainers experienced difficulties with their trainees. All trainers saw the benefit of an annual trainers workshop. Conclusion: It is recommended that the College provides better organisation for and training of trainers. A trainers co-ordinator, a trainers handbook and an annual trainers workshop are some suggestions.published_or_final_versio

    Service User Involvement in Training for the Therapeutic Management of Violence and Aggression

    Get PDF
    Involving service users in mental health education and training has increased considerably over the last few years, especially in the initial pre-registration training of mental health professionals (social workers, nurses, psychologists). There is a growing understanding of the important contribution that service users can make to developing the mental health practitioners of the future. Involving service users in the education of future mental health practitioners is seen as important in providing students with the opportunity for developing greater awareness and understanding through the unique insights of people’s lived experience of mental health conditions, and of their contact with mental health services. This paper describes the involvement of service user trainers in the development and delivery of a short training course in physical restraint for mental health professionals. It considers the impact of including service users who themselves have experience being restrained in acute mental health settings, from the perspective of course participants, tutors and the service user trainers themselves
