SKIPP Project Launches ENHANCED Training Program

The SKIPP Project will launch of its first ENHANCED Training Program in Fall 2016.  The program will facilitate deeper learning and skill development for child and youth injury and violence prevention in Wake County, NC.  The training program will:

  • Use a team-based learning approach:  participants will apply to and work as teams during the training program.
  • Emphasize peer learning:  teams will participate in facilitated exercises to encourage peer learning and networking  across the participating teams, offered in a supportive environment.
  • Support real-world projects, products, or outcomes:  teams will identify/complete activities designed to address their current work or future efforts.  Each team will identify its training program-ending product or outcome.
  • Offer technical assistance (TA):  teams will receive coaching assistance from SKIPP staff (at, and between, in-person ENHANCED sessions) to apply learning to the team’s real-world projects.

This is not a traditional ‘workshop style’ learning experience!  The ENHANCED training program provides opportunities for learning during and between four, 5-hour in-person sessions held from Fall 2016 to Spring 2017.  As a result, learning, activities, and materials will be tailored to the needs of teams selected to participate in the training program.

For additional information about the training program, including how to submit an initial application, please visit the SKIPP Project’s ENHANCED Training Program website.
