Professionals training

We have created Digital Training to up skill staff on current Health & Wellbeing priorities in Wigan for children.

These training video's will give staff an understanding of the current picture in Wigan and health messages they can relay to children and parents to ensure we all make a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of our children in the borough.

We appreciate time is valuable, so we have created 10 minute bitesize presentations, which can be viewed at a convenient time for you.
