Delivering Young Health Champions: Peer Support

This one day course is designed to talk you through the delivery of our accredited Level 1 Young Health Champion Award. The aim of the programme is to enable you to upskill young people aged 14+ to become Young Health Champions in your setting, who can develop their leadership skills and awareness of mental health to subsequently support their peers.  It also acts as a perfect PSHE programme. As with our other Train The Trainer courses, you will leave with a training manual and trainer notes to guide you through delivery of the programme in your setting.


Please note: the Young Health Champions Award is currently accredited through YMCA Awards and in order to become certificated you will need to register any courses you subsequently deliver.
