Training

HIT are able to offer a range of briefing and training sessions:

 

HIT service briefing sessions

We can come out to meet you and your team/service/setting and deliver a short presentation about our service, what we do and how we can help you

 

HIT presentation on ‘Threading health improvement through your everyday practice’

We can come out to deliver a presentation to your team/service/setting which highlights the current health statistics for England and Bolton, the importance of healthy lifestyles, prevalence of risk factors and what can be done to improve this.  It then aims to start a conversation about what you are doing already, what you can do to further support families to live well and explain the support we can provide to you.  Presentation can be adapted to last between 30mins to 3 hours depending on time and number of staff available.

We offer the following training courses.  Staff can attend our generic rolling programme delivered at various venues throughout the year or if you have enough staff, we are able to come out and deliver a bespoke session for you.
