PLAN-A Trainer Vacancy
PLAN-A aims to tackle the problem that very few teenage girls are physically active enough to benefit their health. PLAN-A aims to find out whether Year 9 girls who receive training to be a “peer supporter” can encourage their friends to adopt an active lifestyle. Peer supporters are nominated by their friends as being influential in their year group and then attend a training programme. Promising results have already been obtained using this model in relation to adolescent smoking.
Bristol University want appoint enthusiastic females to work as peer-supporter trainers in the PLAN-A project to deliver a school-based, peer-led programme to increase the physical activity of adolescent girls. The training programme for this study will be undertaken with female students in Year 9 from ten secondary schools in Wiltshire, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, BANES and Devon. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an innovative research project in a leading Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences at the University of Bristol.
