Course content

The framework is designed to broaden knowledge and understanding in fields of exercise, health promotion, public health, work related health and general wellbeing to meet the demands of a changing population demographic. We offer a wide variety of modules suited to those working, but not exclusively, in health care and sports science fields.

Many of the key policy drivers across the UK health and social care sector attempt to address the public health challenges which include lifestyle related diseases, population growth and an ageing demographic, mental health problems, addictions and health inequalities. There is also a recognition that good health is not solely down to the NHS and that local authorities and the voluntary sector have a pivotal role to play.
