Who is this training for?
This training is for all health educators including teachers and school nurses. e-Bug carried out a needs assessment to see how e-Bug could help educators with their delivery of health topics. The needs assessment showed that educators would benefit from an e-Bug training module. Therefore, e-Bug have created a training module for educators.
