Peer Education Basic Training

Become a peer educator and give girls a space to talk about what’s important to them!

27 – 29 October 2023 (Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon) Inverness Youth Hostel, Victoria Drive, Inverness, IV2 3QB

What is a Peer Educator?

Peer educators are role models for thousands of girls around the UK. If you’re aged 14-25, you can help Brownies, Guides and Rangers (and even young people outside Girlguiding) explore important topics like mental wellbeing, safety and gender stereotypes. You’ll run fun activities which have been developed in partnership with girls and experts. And as a young person, you’ll use your own experience to bring subjects to life. You can find out more about peer education here.

What is the basic training weekend?

During the basic training weekend you will learn about Girlguiding’s peer education programme. You will train as a peer educator in a hands-on way, exploring the skills and methods used in peer education through different activities. As well as getting practical tools such as ideas for games and activities, you will receive information on training topics and, most importantly, how to get peer education up and running in your area. The training is all undertaken in one weekend, after which you will be able to run sessions.


Free – as well as your training, you will be provided with meals and accommodation for the duration of the event, we will cover travel expenses and will even order you a Peer Education t-shirt after you have completed your training!

Although the training is free, there is an expectation that you will take what you have learned back to your county and deliver sessions for your peers.
