Training forms the core of any Making Every Contact Count programme. Use these checklists and samples of training provided by other organisations to develop your approach.

Ensuring staff have the skills, knowledge and confidence to deliver the right messages, and signpost people to appropriate services is key to success.

If you are commissioning or designing training, or comparing training course’s content, the quality marker training checklist compiled by Public Health England and Health Education England can be used to assess the quality of the content.
