A training course for professionals working with teenage parents is to be rolled out across England.

A training course for professionals working with teenage parents is to be rolled out across England.

The Family Planning Association's Promoting Choices course focuses on reducing repeated unplanned pregnancy in under 18s and is split over two events.

The first is a one-day course for midwives, health visitors and nurses. The second is a two-day course for any professional working with young parents and sexual health.

Road shows start on the 18 September 2007 and run until the 4 March 2008 in nine locations in England: Wolverhampton, Torbay, Hartlepool, Manchester, Eastbourne, Norfolk, Derby, Leeds and London.

Claire Fanstone, fpa training manager, said: 'Promoting Choices will help attendees work confidently with teenage parents and give them the support and advice they need to make informed choices about their own sexual health.'
