Marketing Text As part of the transfer of innovation from Wales to the other FEIGHT partner countries, the training package was adapted from handbooks developed for the previous PEPE TOI project, with permission from that project’s lead partner, Gower College Swansea. Two handbooks were developed for PEPE. The first was the “Training Trainers Programme”, which was designed to increase the quality of training provided to peer education trainers and the training they delivered in their institutions, thus raising the quality of provision and assisting in raising the quality of training for the target groups. The second was the “Peer Education Training Course”, an innovative training programme developed through the previous PIP TOI project. Both handbooks were redesigned and repurposed for FEIGHT and consist respectively of 68 and 198 pages.
The handbooks were part of the main tangible outcomes of the project and contributed as planned to the project objectives.
The Peer Education training method aimed to increase the personal communication and relationship skills both of peer educators and the target groups of disadvantaged people in education and the workplace. It aimed to increase the social and employability skills of the target groups through personal development exercises delivered by trained peer educators.
