FFT running RSPH level 2 Award in Understanding Health Improvement

This qualification is aimed at organisations with an interest in the health and wellbeing of their workforce and customer/client groups. It provides an ideal way of equipping key staff with basic health advice and methods of support which they can then use to inform and assist colleagues and/or customers.

The government white paper, entitled Choosing Health: Making healthy choices easier published in 2004, identified the need for a new role of NHS Health Trainer to be established, to advise, motivate and support individuals to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

This short Level 2 award has been developed in support of the wider Health Trainer role identified in the white paper, for which Level 3 qualifications are being developed by other awarding bodies.

This award covers:

  1. Inequalities in health
  2. How effective communication can support health messages
  3. Importance of promoting improvements in health and wellbeing
  4. Impact of behaviour change on health and wellbeing

Holders of this qualification will have the underpinning knowledge and understanding necessary to work effectively in helping people who need support and encouragement to make positive changes in their lives, including how to help them access further assistance (in, for example, identifying barriers to change, and setting goals) towards the objective of adopting and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. The programme is usually delivered over one day and assessment is by a 45 minute multiple-choice examination consisting of 30 multiple choice questions.
