Who are they for?

These courses are adaptable to the workplace or for anyone in the social care or community health sector. Great for Health and community volunteers, to those employed as local Health Trainers and those progressing into being strategic carers.

Our courses bring action thinking about people’s health and well-being, at home or in the workplace.

Learning is thematic and can motivate you using fun, action techniques, and all in the context of the candidates own environment.

Level 3 Certificate – Health Trainer (Based on City & Guilds ex-scheme)

6 days (equivalent attendance)

Health Trainers (sometimes called Lifestyle or Wellbeing Mentors) can gain this qualification with full support from our course tutors. This qualification is for all, from those who are just starting out to those in the work place that have responsibility for any stage of health or workplace wellbeing strategy. You do not need any prior qualification. Some people choose an entry Level 2 (RSPH) but in our experience we recommend direct entry onto the Level 3 as the most efficient priced route to Health and Wellbeing Qualifications. Level 2 is theory based, while Level 3 goes into knowledge and skills through the practical application.

This Level 3 will suit you if you like the idea of working closely with people to promote their better health and well-being.

There are four core units:

  • Introduction to the role and responsibilities of a health trainer
  • Establishing and developing relationships with communities
  • Communicate with individuals about promoting their health and well-being
  • Enable individuals to change their behaviour to improve their health and well-being
