Being a Trainer

Young Trainers - You become the trainer for professional people working with children in care.

 

What is training?

Staff training is when staff come together to learn more about an area of their work, or learn something new to help them do their jobs better. Social Workers and foster carers all have to do an amount of training each year.

 

Being a trainer means being the person who helps staff to learn. Learning can happen in lots of different ways, so being a trainer is often really exciting and creative.

 

What do young people do?

Young people have been helping to train staff for for over 6 years in Wakefield.

There is an excellent programme for new and experienced young people to become involved in training. Our course is called Particiation and Voices and you can find out more about it by clicking on the downloadable document on this page.

The current course our young people run is called 'Participation and Voices'.
