WISH training (Sexual Health)

The WISH training programme is commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council. All courses are facilitated by the Terrence Higgins Trust, a specialist sexual health service that is part of the new Buckinghamshire Sexual Health and Wellbeing service. The overall aim of the WISH programme is to promote the sexual health and wellbeing of all Buckinghamshire  residents and to equip those working with  individuals of all ages, gender, ethnicity, disability or sexuality  with the knowledge, skills and tools to develop  resilience, respect and to promote consensual healthy and safe sexual relationships.

These are multi-agency courses for all those who are currently working with young people / vulnerable adults, to enable them to work effectively with people around sexual health and relationships in either one to one or group situations.

The courses available include:

  • Wellbeing in Sexual Health (WISH) Training – Tier 1 and Tier 2
  • HIV and AIDs Awareness
  • Relationships and Education in Schools / Academies
