Tailor made training case study – NHS Lanarkshire

The brief

This health authority manages a large-scale multi-agency condom distribution scheme. They want all staff involved to be more competent in discussing sexual health with clients.

The solution

The training needs assessment indicated a significant variation in skills and experience among staff. In response, we developed a basic and advanced level version of the training to meet these specific needs.

The feedback

“The evaluations are absolutely excellent from every angle. People have definitely got lots out of it especially in terms of skills, knowledge and confidence. Thanks so much for a brilliant piece of work.”
