Training Intro

We offer a number of training courses for those working with young people in Bristol. The courses aim to increase workers’ confidence and skills to respond appropriately to young people’s queries, refer them to appropriate sources of support and advice and to carry out effective sex and relationships and substance misuse work.

It is recommended that all professionals working with young people in Bristol, as a minimum, attend the introductory Level 1 Sex and Relationships and Level 1 Substance Misuse courses (unless they have in-depth knowledge in these areas and have a good overview of local services).

To find out more about each course and to apply online just click on the title of the course you are interested in. If you have questions about the content or the relevance of the course to your role or if you would like to discuss the possibility of in-house training please contact jessica.baugh@bristol.gov.uk. Once you have booked your place, unless otherwise contacted, you will be sent an official confirmation email 2-3 weeks prior to the course. In most cases we are able to offer a place to everyone who applies.
