Sexual health project assistants complete training

Wednesday 24 April 2013

Our seven sexual health project assistants have now completed all of the training delivered to them as part of the Prevent / Protect project.

With funding from the NHS, over 20 hours of training was provided throughout April for the young women aged 18-25 that signed up to take part in the project. Sessions included training in relationships and sexual health education, counselling and listening skills and public speaking and presentation skills. Now that training is complete, our project assistants will be supported to deliver sexual health and relationship workshops to other young people in Westminster and Kensington.  

Whilst some admitted to a few pre-delivery nerves, the group was in high spirits. 'I am nervous, but I know I have a good support network' said one, whilst another told us 'I'm feeling confident and looking forward to the peer-led workshop sessions and I've learnt lots of new skills!'

All of our young project assistants excelled during training, and they have really impressed us with their passion and commitment. We're looking forward to the final stage of the project and to hearing feedback from their workshops.
