I found the RSPH Level 2 in Understanding Health Improvement very informative and it has given me a lot of ideas as to how I can make changes myself but also encourage better approaches within my team. The course was well delivered and all learners were actively engaged in activities and discussions.

I recently attended this course and really enjoyed the whole expereince. It was very interactive and involved a lot of discussion. Anybody with an interest in wellbeing and health should certainly book on this course. The group I attended with were from very diverse workplaces and the tutor managed the delivery very well and made the content relevant to all.

I felt this course was very relevant to my work in behaviour change as it has a very broad subject base around the public health agenda and improving quality of life through better health. The tutor was great and made the day very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this course to colleagues.
