Foundations in Wellbeing & Health Promotion: developing a short course
Moorley, C. 2013. Foundations in Wellbeing & Health Promotion: developing a short course. UEL Research and Knowledge Exchange Conference 2013. University of East London, London 26 Jun 2013 London University of East London.
Background & Rationale The University of East London (UEL) is at the heart of Europe’s largest regeneration and plays an integral role in local development.
The University has a global learning community and is recognised for its international research. UEL has strong links with local and national business and an outstanding record in widening access to students from non traditional backgrounds. UEL is part of the Linking London Lifelong Learning Network.
The School of Health, Sport and Bioscience works closely with surrounding NHS trusts and third sector employers. Listening to these users, we realised that apart from health and social care workers there are workers in the third and voluntary sector who work in public health and health promotion but have no formal qualification or recognition of this important work.
Aims of the course This course aims to provide students with a basic knowledge in wellbeing and health promotion. Develop and improve knowledge and communication while identifying how wellbeing is affected by key determinants of health. It enables students to develop a portfolio of their learning and experience.

- Applicants already working in health and social care and have been unable to obtain an academic qualification or attend University due to personal and or social circumstances.
