Project ECHO Hub Immersion Training

Once your organisation is ready, we offer a three-day training into the ECHO model and next steps for implementation.

Here you will find everything you need to know before booking on to ECHO Immersion Training. The training package is inclusive of 3 days training, training materials as well as support with preparing to launch your ECHO hub and on going comprehensive support thereafter.

Who should attend training?

  • We ask that a minimum of three people from your implementation team attend the same 3 day training course in full;
  • We suggest that your ECHO Implementation Team comprise of the Project Lead (who may also be the facilitator of individual ECHO sessions), at least one context expert or specialist and other members of your anticipated ECHO HUB Team who will provide the facilitation of your ECHO Network Sessions, an Administrator/Coordinator, and IT Co-ordinator/Technician.


Hospice UK have received some funding for ECHO Immersion training which means we are able to offer training for Hospice UK members a subsidised rate. Highland Hospice have recently received funding from the Scottish Government which allows Hospices within Scotland to be trained free of charge for a limited period of time.

We regret that we are unable to subsidise any travel, accommodation or subsistence expenditure which you may incur.
