AVA and Women and Girls Network Train the Trainer Course: Working with young people affected by sexual and domestic violence including gang-related violence
Earlier this year, AVA and Women & Girls Network were funded by the Home Office to develop a five-day Open College Network accredited training course targeted at practitioners working with gang-affected young women experiencing sexual and domestic violence. They have now received further funding to deliver this training free to the 13 new Young People’s Advocates and other professionals in the 21 local areas they will be delivering services to.
The training course now needs to be piloted and they are seeking to run the pilot as a Train the Trainer course for up to 10 learners based in organisations that cover the 11 local areas who are part of the Ending Gang & Youth Violence Programme but do not have funding for a Young People’s Advocate. Following the pilot, all training materials will be made available to learners to deliver the course in their own local area.
Free places on this course are available to learners from organisations operating in the following local authority areas: Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Birmingham, Derby, Nottingham, Knowsley, Liverpool, Oldham, Sheffield.
Course dates: 13th, 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd November 2012
Times: 10:00 – 16:30
Location: London, venue TBC
Places will be prioritised for learners who:
- Are currently employed by an Open College Network accredited organisation
- Have experience of delivering training to professionals in one of the areas named above and/or are employed by an organisation which does
- Have experience providing services to young people and/or survivors of violence against women and girls.
This course is OCN accredited and learners will be required to attend all five days and complete and pass a series of assessment tasks.
