Skills development and Peer Training
Are you aged 14-25?
Do you live, work or study in Southwark?
Do you want to develop your skills?

What is this?
The Phoenix Education Trust runs peer-led training for school-aged students to help them gain the confidence and communication skills they need to campaign for the changes they want to see happen. This is a chance to experience our training first hand and develop your skills so you can work as a peer trainer on your own or with us in the future.

It is FREE! All you have to do is sign up and come to three days of workshops. You will receive a certificate at the end and have the opportunity to sign up to our pool of peer trainers! There is only space for 25 people, with priority places for people aged 20 or under!
When and where is it?
10am to 4pm on the 18th, 19th and 20th August 2014 in Southwark.
