HIIC Tutor Training & Registration

Who can become a trainer?

Although anyone can use the learning pack to run one-off sessions or short courses it is important that those wishing to run full Health Issues in the Community courses are registered HIIC Tutors. Only registered HIIC Tutors are able to run credit rated courses.

HIIC Tutor Training courses

The 2 day HIIC Tutor Training course is a credit rated course, 8 points at level 7, and aims to equip participants to deliver Health Issues in the Community training to a wide variety of people in a broad range of settings.  Applicants should have a reasonable knowledge of community development and/or delivering training in a community setting.  The Tutor Training gives participants an opportunity to find out about the pack content, how to use it, the learning methods that are used and the expectations/responsibilities of tutors.

Health and social inclusion policy developments have resulted in an increase in initiatives that target health inequalities and community involvement in health (e.g. community health projects and healthy living centres).

Health Issues in the Community is a training programme aimed at increasing community capacity, increasing community participation, and establishing / consolidating community development approaches to tackling inequalities in health.

Anyone wishing to attend, who is not already on the waiting list, should contact Alex Macdonald for registration details at
