Health Improvement Training Programme

The 2015 to 2016 Health Improvement Training Programme is available now! Health Improvement 15-16

Offering a range of free training courses, the Health Improvement Training Programme aims to enable workers to improve the health and wellbeing of local people, and to reduce health inequalities.  It is open to all public and voluntary sector workers and volunteers throughout Fife.

The content of this training programme has been influenced by the responses of nearly 1000 individuals who contributed to our recent training needs assessment.  We have introduced new courses in health literacy and creating imaginative learning as a result. 

Courses are also available to support current priorities for health improvement such as asset based working, the impact of welfare reform, health behaviour change and the need to evaluate and learn from our work.

The programme continues to feature key topics for health and wellbeing including drug and alcohol awareness, mental health, and food, physical activity and health.  ‘Mental Health First Aid for Young People’, ‘Young People and Tobacco Issues’ and ‘Are You Ready?: Supporting Young People to Delay Early Sexual Activity’ are just some of the exciting new training opportunities available.

The Health Improvement Training Programme is managed by Health Promotion Fife and is delivered in partnership with NHS Fife, Fife Council and voluntary sector organisations and services.  The Health Promotion Information and Resources Centre hold copies of the key materials and resources that complement our training courses and these can be borrowed free of charge by all partner agencies.

We work closely with the Health Promotion Information and Resources Centre to ensure that books, packs and materials that complement our courses are available for loan by the Fife workforce.

The full list of courses running between September 2015 and March 2016 can be viewed at www.healthyfife.net or via the attached pdf programme.  For a copy of programme, please contact Karen Stirling at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
