Equipping staff and stakeholders with behaviour change skills.

The SMG team draw from our collective decades of practical behaviour change experience to deliver a range of training courses to clients looking to make a meaningful difference to the communities they work in.

We have shared our expert knowledge with tens of thousands of staff members across Local Authorities, Health Boards, Registered Charities, Health & Social Care Partnerships and NHS organisations.

Every training package we deliver is bespoke to a client’s particular needs. However, our core focus remains the same: courses that build the skills, capacity, and confidence required to support people in changing their behaviour.

Making Every Contact Count (MECC)

MECC provides a blueprint for frontline staff to have simple, impactful conversations with people about their health and wellbeing. Our MECC courses provide participants with the skills to communicate clearly and concisely when delivering brief interventions.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

SMG’s MI training equips professionals with the skills to address problem behaviours in the people they work with. Participants learn to inspire behaviour from our training, which has a core focus on practical application that is centred around their individual role.

Good Conversations Around Vaccinations

A course designed to effectively address the increasing levels of vaccine hesitancy within communities. Participants learn to understand someone’s reasons for not taking a vaccine and how to employ conversational techniques that could motivate them to engage with vaccination programmes.

Social Marketing and Behaviour Change Training

We share our practical behaviour change knowledge with participants, providing them with the tools to design and implement behaviour change interventions. Content includes insight gathering, segmentation, communications, and evaluation.
