Peer Education Basic Training

by | Jun 24, 2019

Please encourage any Young Leaders or volunteers aged 14 – 25 in your unit to book a place on this fun filled weekend where they will make new friends, develop new skills and improve their confidence – all whilst training to become a Girlguiding Peer Educator!
 

Who and what are Peer Educators?

Peer Educators are trained members between 14 and 25 who run sessions for Brownies, Guides and Rangers.

They also work with other youth groups or schools. These sessions focus on issues or skills that are important to them and their peers such as:

  • Mental Health
  • Self Esteem
  • Gender Stereotypes

About the Peer Educator Basic Training Weekend

To gain the skills required to become a Peer Educator you need to complete the peer education e-learning, Safe Space levels 1 & 2 and attend a Peer Education Basic Training Weekend.

On day one you will explore the skills and methods used in peer education through different activities and gain practical tools like game ideas.

On day two you will take part in topic training.

By the end of the weekend you will be equipped with the information you need to get going on topics and have received advice on how to get Peer Education started in your area.

If you know someone in your unit team who would make a great Peer Educator, please download the promotional leaflet from the link below or share this news item with them so they can book a place.
