Training workshop opportunity for Aboriginal Tobacco Action Workers thoughout Australia

CEITC are inviting Aboriginal health organisations throughout Australia to register their interest in hosting a 2‐day training workshop for Tobacco Action Workers and/or Health Workers in Tobacco Control.

These workshops aim to cover the basics of tobacco control activity.

 Areas covered include:

– Smoking Matters – Helping people to Quit

– Community Development – Developing a work plan and successful project

– Smoke‐free workplace Policy – Event Planning

– Evaluation

CEITC will provide trainers and supply all training materials at no cost. Any other expenses (such as venue, catering) are covered by the host organisation. Participant travel, accommodation and any other associated costs are covered by the respective participating organisations.

CEITC are currently negotiating to hold a number of workshops over the coming months in Launceston, Darwin, Alice Springs, Broome and Brisbane.

It may be possible to include additional participants at these workshops and we would therefore invite you to register your interest. Participation would be subject to approval from the host organisations.
