Training for professionals

Our training is designed to create a stimulating learning environment which encourages reflection, challenge, sharing of best practice and personal development.

At the heart of our training ethos is the knowledge that good quality training for those working with young people helps to counter health inequalities and improve the wellbeing of young people.

We offer sessions throughout the year which individuals are able to book on. Please see the upcoming sessions below.

We are also able to provide bespoke training on request for organisations or professional groups – if you are interested in discussing this further please contact southwark@brook.org.uk.
