Training, Seminars and Events

The Service delivers a core training programme, open to all, as well as other targeted training to support particular agendas and local needs.  We host regular health inequalities seminars in the City of Edinburgh and East Lothian, and bite size workshops in Midlothian.  The Service also organises other events to support specific programmes when the need arises.

About our core training programme

Our courses and workshops cover core health promotion skills and approaches, and a variety of topics relevant to the life stages. 
  • The aims of our training are: to increase the skills and knowledge of people working in the wider field of health improvement; to provide courses that build confidence, explore attitudes and reinforce sound health promotion methodology; and to build capacity in the workforce to tackle health inequalities
  • Our courses are open to workers from all sectors, volunteers and community members
  • All courses are FREE of charge, however we reserve the right to invoice for an administration charge of £40 for non attendance without prior notice.
  • Courses are participative and involve a variety of methods

Capacity Building Training Programme – Training Needs Assessment

NHS Lothian Health Promotion Service would like your views on our Capacity Building Training Programme.
We currently offer many courses that support the health improvement workforce throughout Lothian, but we want to take this opportunity to engage with participants and partners to ensure that the programme meets the needs of practitioners. We are also keen to identify future training opportunities.
The questionnaire will only take 5 minutes to complete, and your views will help design our future Capacity Building Training Programme - the questionnaire can be found at the link below:
The Survey Monkey questionnaire will be live for 2 months - from the 8th May – 7th July 2017
Please feel free to circulate this throughout your networks.
Many thanks,
NHS Lothian Health Promotion Service.
