National Certificate in Health and Well-Being at Work Short course


Healthy workers can be almost three times more productive than their unhealthy colleagues. People who are unwell either don’t perform at their best, or may not turn up for work at all. Learning more about how to mitigate this problem in a workplace setting is essential to maintaining an effective workplace.

If you're a manager, supervisor or HR employee, this qualification will give you the knowledge and skills to promote good health and wellbeing at work. The qualification is also a great stepping stone to further progress in your career.

This qualification explores practical health and wellbeing solutions in the workplace and involves a practical assessment on identifying health needs in the workplace and implementing positive change.

If you run a business or organisation, employing people with this qualification demonstrates a commitment to the health and wellbeing of your wider workforce, and assures your staff and customers that you're helping to achieve recognised standards. It could even win new business.

This course is accredited by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).
