Quit Victoria is offering scholarships to health, education and welfare workers fluent in English and one of a number of community languages to train as Quit Educators. If you are bi-lingual and want to help smokers in your community to quit, find out more about Quit Educator Training.
This two-day training course, run by Quit Victoria, prepares workers with an interest in health education to offer one-to-one support or run Quit group programs for smokers who want to quit. Training includes the theory behind helping people who want to change their behaviour, practical exercises, advice from experienced educators and resources for running Quit courses.
Those who train as Quit Educators need to be non-smokers. If they are former smokers, they must have stopped at least six months ago.
A number of free places, or scholarships, are being offered to workers fluent in English and another language, especially one of the languages spoken by newly arriving communities in Victoria. The regular cost of training is $250.
Scholarships will only be offered to those who are willing and able to use this training at their workplace and with community organisations. To be considered for a scholarship, applicants also need the endorsement of their employer.
