SBNL train the trainer programme

The WAVE strength-based needs-led (SBNL) Working Group is happy to announce the launch of the SBNL train the trainer programme. This trainings consists of a training manual containing basic guidance, curricula and associated material to support the delivery of a training on the SBNL method of work in WSS. The training is organised into three modules each covering a different though connected element of understanding the SBNL approach and its application. Modules one and two were written by Fiona Vera-Gray and Liz Kelly. Module three was written by the working group members.

The train the trainer manual is available for WAVE Members via this link.

The training materials are available via this link.

The training aims are:
– to provide an introduction of the history and principles of the women’s movement to set up women-only provision across Europe;
– to produce a timeline of international and European legislation and policies relevant to violence against women
and girls;
– to establish what it means and looks like to deliver strength-based, needs-led principles and provision in practice, through the exploration of examples of SBNL provision across Europe.
