Let’s Build Skills courses
Open access e-learning training
Two free online courses provide core facilitation skills and sexual and reproductive health knowledge for community stakeholders working with adolescents and youth.
The Group Facilitation course consists of five e-learning modules designed to equip participants with skills to successfully conduct adolescent support groups. The Sexual and Reproductive Health course consists of four e-learning modules that provide essential knowledge about HIV, sexually transmitted infections, contraception, sexual negotiation skills, consent and other related topics.
Each module is narrated by a friendly Let’s Talk avatar trainer who guides participants through various interactive exercises designed to reinforce learning and recall. Learners must pass a quiz at the end of each module that tests their knowledge of key concepts. Each module usually requires an hour to complete and requires 30MB of internet data.
