Centre for Behaviour Change


Advanced Training Programme

The Advanced Training Programme is a flexible training course will help participants develop specialist knowledge and skills in behaviour change.

                                                           Advanced Training Programme

The course consists of modules covering distinct but related subjects: changing behaviour in systems, influencing motivation, and process evaluation. Each module will be delivered on a separate date, spread out throughout the year, depending on expressions of interest. Participants can register for each module separately to build up a tailored programme of training.

Details of each module are listed below. We are only taking registrations for the Changing Behaviour in Systems module currently but we hope to open registrations for the other two modules soon. Registration is now closed for the Changing Behaviour Systems module.

Changing Behaviour in Systems

This module will run as a full day (date not yet confirmed) via the virtual learning platform UCLeXtend

This module will draw together principles of behaviour change and systems thinking to address behavioural problems within systems such as organisations and communities. Participants will be introduced to the principles of understanding behaviour in systems and how to describe and analyse this using the methodology of behavioural systems mapping. 

To register your interest in this module, please email behaviourchange@ucl.ac.uk.

Evaluating Behaviour

The process evaluation module will consist of a set of webinars. Key content will be broken down into digestible chunks with time allocated to apply learning to learners’ own interventions and gain support on how to prioritise different aspects of process evaluation based on available resources. Example content covered in webinars will include “What is Process Evaluation and how does it relate to Outcome Evaluation?”, “Implementation and Fidelity” and “Acceptability and Mechanisms of Change”.

There are many examples of our Alumni putting Summer School learing into practice including private and public sector organisations revising their behaviour change strategies. Some academic publications include:

  • Applying the COM-B behaviour model and behaviour change wheel to develop an intervention to improve hearing-aid use in adult auditory rehabilitation.
  • Barriers and Recommended Interventions to Prevent Melioidosis in Northeast Thailand: a focus group study using the Behaviour Change Wheel.
  • Increasing the frequency of physical activity very brief advice for cancer patients. Development of an intervention using the Behaviour Change Wheel.

There is a LinkedIn group called UCL CBC Summer School Alumni. We would encourage all past participants of the 2018 and 2019 Summer Schools to join to keep in touch and share their learning.
