Health Talks are pleased to announce they have again commissioned the Faculty of Public Health Accredited Practitioner Programme, a series of 6 half-day workshops which provide degree-level learning for the key competencies required for public health practice. These do not only provide functions for practitioners to help gain UKPHR registration– but also to provide CPD opportunities to develop the whole public health workforce. There is no charge for these sessions, and they are perfect for experienced practitioners who have not had the opportunity for formal study.
The Public Health Practitioners Accredited programme (PHPAP) utilises the Faculty of Public Health’s years of experience in delivering successful courses within public health. The programme provides an excellent opportunity to develop skills and knowledge for people who are not specialists or practitioners in public health, but have the opportunity or ability to positively impact health and wellbeing through their work. The programme consists of multi-professional, interactive masterclasses which provide a wealth of information and advice, and are delivered by highly experienced professionals.
Dates and themes for the six sessions are as follows:
