About our Training

Training Courses

Sexual Health Sheffield has a history of delivering a wide range of evidence based, high quality and excellently evaluated sexual health training courses. Our Community Engagement team (formerly the Centre for HIV & Sexual Health) were instrumental in developing the Department of Health’s National Recommended Quality Standards in Sexual Health and all our training courses meet the standards set out in this document.

Our training courses are participatory, working with the experience that group members bring and are specifically designed to incorporate elements of personal development to address the issues raised, alongside professional development, skills and practical strategies for the work.
