Limited places are now available for RSPH-accredited supporting smoking cessation, understanding health improvement and supporting behaviour change courses in Birmingham in the new year.

If one of your new year’s resolutions is to gain a health and wellbeing qualification (or to support your staff to do so), then this is for you. These short courses are suitable for wellbeing officers, health champions, community workers, health advisors, pharmacy assistants, volunteers, and anyone else who is interested in improving the health and wellbeing of people in their workplace or local community.

Course attendees will learn how to motivate and encourage others to make positive lifestyle choices, and gain a nationally recognised, accredited health and wellbeing qualification.
