There are some spare places on the upcoming Making Every Contract Count (MECC) training sessions in June in Reading.

The MECC Train the Trainer course is for people who want to become a MECC Trainer for this area – meaning you will be able to go out and train other front line teams in how to ‘Make Every Contact Count’ so as to support people’s health and wellbeing through their normal/routine interactions with members of the public. Or you may be interested in becoming a MECC Champion, looking for more in-depth knowledge of what MECC entails in order to be effective in this role within your organisation.

Lesley Wyman will be delivering three sessions from 9.30am to 2.30 pm as follows:

4 June: Central Library, Third Floor
11 June: Central Library, Third Floor
19 June: Greyfriars Church, Rooms 3-4

This course was previously available only to people who had already attended an initial half-day MECC training. However, there are some spare places and the trainer can give new delegates a quick recap at the beginning. This might be useful for everyone anyway, as that last training was run just over a year ago now.

Further information
  • For queries, or to book a place, please email Janette Searle janette.searle@reading.gov.uk
  • Please note: you need to attend all three half-day sessions and be present throughout the sessions in order to obtain UKPH trainer accreditation, and be part of the local MECC trainer pool going forward.
  • MECC training material as developed by the BOB Sustainability and Transformation Team will be distributed at the end of the course.
