Home > Training > Baby Friendly Initiative Courses > Five-Day Training for Maternity & Health Visiting Infant Feeding Leads

The five-day training course covers Breastfeeding and Relationship Building, Train the Trainer, Audit and Achieving Sustainability.

This course is delivered over an initial three days, followed by two days and with a gap of two weeks in between. It is ideal for Maternity or Health Visiting Infant Feeding Leads who are new in post, as this training will cover all four key training areas in a condensed format. Please note this course is not intended for neonatal staff.

In addition to the five taught days, participants will receive:

  • Access to the Breastfeeding and Relationship Building pre-course e-learning package
  • The Train the Trainer package of resources
  • The Manager Training pack
  • The Breastfeeding and Relationship Building and Train the Trainer handbooks

The price of the five-day course is £1350 per person (2024 price), which provides a cost saving compared to if all four training courses were booked separately.
