Training Courses

We provide the broadest range of contraception and sexual health training courses in the UK. Whether you are a doctor, nurse, midwife, pharmacist, community care worker, or healthcare support worker, we have a course for you. If you represent a Clinical Commissioning Group, pharmacy, medical practice, educational institution, or any other body, we can develop bespoke sexual and reproductive health (SRH) training for your needs. Upcoming SRH courses and some of our bespoke institutional training options include:

Margaret Pyke Conferences – Training for doctors, nurses, midwives, and others
Half-day conferences: 26 January, 24 February and 25 March
Full-day conferences: 9 July and 1 October

Whether you attend face to face, virtually, or watch the event recording, our flagship conferences are appropriate for doctors, nurses, midwives and other clinicians working in primary or secondary care, who need to be up-to-date with recent SRH developments and the latest guidelines.  Half-day conferences are valid for 3 hours’ recertification of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare’s DFSRH and 3 CPD points. Full day conferences are valid for 6 hours’ recertification and 6 CPD points. Find out more.

SRH Essentials for Primary Care – Training for primary care practitioners
Next dates: 11 February 2021 and 26 February 2021
Central London venue

The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare designed SRH Essentials as the perfect introductory SRH course for GPs, nurses, midwives, physician associates, paramedics and other primary care professionals. Helping women to choose a contraceptive method, preventing unwanted pregnancies, and diagnosing STIs, are important aspects of day-to-day primary care, though many of those consulting patients have not had specific SRH training. This training bridges that gap. Find out more.

Clinical Commissioning Groups – Bespoke training

We provide bespoke in-house training courses on women’s health, sexual health and contraception for many Clinical Commissioning Groups, responding to their particular training needs. Find out more.

SRH Training for Pharmacies – Bespoke training

As pharmacies are increasingly undertaking provision of contraception, a growing number of pharmacies need training for their pharmacists and in-store nurses, based on their specific Patient Group Directions. Find out more.

SRH for Community Care Workers – Bespoke training

Whilst bespoke training can be of any length, we believe a half-day course is appropriate for community care workers, enabling them to develop foundational knowledge to better support their NHS colleagues. Find out more.

SRH for Health Care Support Workers – Bespoke training

Health care support workers have an increasingly important role and frequently lack the benefit of having had any specific SRH training. We can help identify training needs and design a course ensuring HCSWs have greater confidence and skill. Find out more.

SRH for Clinics in Schools, Colleges and Universities – Bespoke training

Training for non-specialist doctors and nurses working in student environments is critical. The younger patient group is one with particular contraception and SRH needs, and we have experience in ensuring the right training for this audience. Find out more.

SRH for School Learners – Bespoke Training

In addition to training clinicians at educational institutions, we also receive requests to provide presenters to school learners about relationships and risky behaviour in the context of contraception and sexual health. Using SRH nurses with a wealth of experience, we can provide speakers who can undertake this work with competence and sensitively. Find out more.

Cervical Screening Updating – Bespoke Training

Our course covers the requirements specified for the half-day update training that should be undertaken every three years by sample takers. Find out more.

Motivational Interviewing – Bespoke Training

This is used in health promotion, predominantly by health advisors, but also by doctors and nurses, to encourage change in risk taking behaviour. This specially designed training provides an understanding of the basic principles and theory underpinning motivational interviewing in a sexual health context. Find out more.
