Training students and staff one workshop at a time!

MANGOSUTHU UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY PEER EDUCATION TRAINING

 

Programme Coordinator for the Universities, Veronica Mgwathi, held a peer Education Training Workshop at Mangosuthu University of Technology with staff and students.

The main aim of the training was to capacitate students and staff in order to support health promotion, social justice, good citizenship, leadership and sharing of health information, values and behaviors through peer to peer education. The training also informed participants about HEAIDS programmes and the supportive role they can play.

Presented in an interactive manner to get the students to fully participate; the training also embodied HEAIDS perspective that the Higher Education & Training sector can transform South Africa. This perspective suggests that Peer to Peer engagements within campuses is an effective method as these institutions are often seen as role models within their communities.
