Information for Peer Educators

Everything you need to know to set up and record your Peer Education sessions

How to book your first session

Now you're officially a peer educator, you need to get your name out there to book your first session. You can:

  • advertise through your county newsletter
  • go to county days
  • speak to local leaders
  • ask your commissioner to send an email out for you.

Ask your coordinator to support you and help with other suggestions.

Tip - deliver your first session in a unit you're comfortable with to build up your confidence.

How to get support

Your county peer education coordinator, county programme adviser and county commissioner can help you with any challenges you face locally - be that a complicated session, where to get your pin badge or how to arrange resources for your sessions.

Email your county commissioner to find out if you have a local peer education coordinator or contact [email protected] to be put in touch with them.

If a girl brings up anything you're worried about, inform the girl's unit leader and they will take forward our Safeguarding advice. You should also go to your local coordinator, county programme adviser or county commissioner to get support for yourself. 

How to learn to deliver more topics

Topic trainings are one-day trainings, developed to help you deliver sessions on a new resource. Nationally, we'll run some of these when a new resource comes out, but keep your eyes on your country/region website where they will update trainings near you.

Also, one of Girlguiding's qualified trainers might ask you to deliver the Girls Learning to Lead toolkit with them. It's a great opportunity to encourage girl-led guiding, try something new yourself and get a taste of what being a Girlguiding qualified trainer is like.
