Vanuatu Peer Educator Training 

Progress

  • Facilitator's manual developed, tested and finalised. An activity-based education program using a training-of-trainers model designed and delivered by Family Planning NSW. The program includes class-room based training integrating a new online learning tool for one subject, and follow-up workplace coaching. The program has a human rights base with a focus on reproductive and sexual health topics, gender, sexual and gender based violence, rights of children and child safety. The program is disability inclusive - there is a specific module on the rights and needs of people with disability, and learning activites used throughout the training represent issues for people with disability e.g. case scenarios.

  • Two staff of Vanuatu Family Health Association, who have completed the training-of-trainers component, are delivering education to peer educators on two islands
  • Online learning tool tested and finalised
