Community Health and Wellbeing

The need to educate people in improving their health and preventing disease has never been greater, with the promotion of health and wellbeing high on the government agenda to address current health concerns. This means that there are more opportunities than ever before for health and wellbeing specialists, who are capable of engaging with communities to effect lasting lifestyle changes.

The course develops a detailed understanding of health and wellbeing, providing knowledge of nutrition, diet, healthy choices, behavioural changes and techniques for lifestyle intervention. You’ll also be considering the key skills to put this knowledge into practice and how to operate as an effective practitioner and promoter of health and wellbeing within your community.
