Workplace Health Champions

What topics are covered by the course?

The programme has four units, each focusing on different areas of healthy living and promoting positive health behaviours. The WHC programme will help champions identify how people fall into unhealthy practices, the personal and social consequences of these behaviours and how to improve the health of others around them by providing help and support. Over two days you will cover:

- Why health inequalities exist and how they can be addressed
- The principles of health promotion
- How to research local health facilities
- How to communicate health improvement messages effectively

Who should attend?

This programme is suitable for those intending to develop their role as health champions in the workplace and provides a link between peers, professionals and specialist services.

What will I be able to do on completion?

Health Champions are not expected to give direct health advice, counselling or one-to-one support, but are likely to engage people in talking about health, provide information on relevant campaigns and guide individuals to relevant services where appropriate.

How will I be assessed?

Students are assessed by one 45 minute multiple choice examination paper. On successful completion students will achieve the Level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement.
