The following are testimonials about Later Life Training courses related to 'SLM'.
This course was so useful. I understand much more how I need to recruit, train and then support older peer mentors. So many potential problems were covered with simple solutions.

|SLM Student - Leisure Services Manager|
A must for those who wish to develop volunteering activity for older people in physical activity. A course very well organised and enthusiastically delivered which gave much information but also practical guidance. Great resources too ! In Kirklees, following the training , we are now benefitting from the support of 75 “physical activity motivators” ( senior peer mentors!) who support us on a weekly basis on our exercise referral programme ….and have even had to develop a waiting list for training ! Their “someone like me” approach has supported many patients on the scheme and has provided motivation and support resulting in sustained activity participation. The experience and wisdom they bring totally complements the technical skills of the exercise professional and adds to the quality experience of the programme. This course is definitely a “best buy” for physical activity!!!
