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).
