This programme has been developed through a partnership between North West Employers and The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). The course is a combination of the solid foundation of the RSPH Level 2 Understanding Health Improvement Award and a focus on the unique position that councillors hold and how this can be used to powerfully influence health and wellbeing inequalities in their local area.†
The course takes a practical and pragmatic approach to championing health and wellbeing focusing on working with delegates to help them to understand and navigate the key terms and concepts of health and wellbeing. The course explores practical tools and approaches councillors can use both in the community, and in influencing the decision making processes that affect health and wellbeing within their authorities.
The accreditation is the Level 2 RSPH Understanding Health Improvement. The accreditation is gained through sitting a short multiple choice questionnaire at the end of the programme.†
Who should attend?
