Training and Facilitation Programme

Our new Training and Facilitation Programme is now available! All training is available to PPN staff, Secretariat Members, PPN Representatives and Member Groups.

In addition, any aspect of this programme can be delivered at county level to a specific PPN or PPN member group. It can also be delivered on a thematic or a regional basis as requested. We are committed to offering training which is useful and relevant, and so will work with you to customise our programmes to the needs of the target group in each area.

Communications and Advocacy

Effective communication is essential to any advocacy campaign. Promoting your message across several media – print, radio, tv and online – at local and national level will get your message out there and draw the attention of policy makers and the public to what you are trying to achieve.

Facilitation Skills

As membership of PPNs grows, it is more important than ever that those involved have the key skills required to ensure that their membership feels heard and understood, that meetings add value to the functioning of the PPN and that consultations deliver a clear mandate for the PPN to work from.

To achieve this, those representing the PPNs or other organisations / colleges need to have good facilitation skills.

Training will take place from 2pm to 4pm.

Training is subject to numbers. Training is free but booking is essential.
