As part of our caring for our community strategy we offer a level one qualification in Mental Health & Wellbeing.
This qualification is suitable for learner’s aged 16 and above. There are no specific prior qualifications needed to access this qualification and it can be delivered in a wide variety of educational settings. It is designed for learners with an interest in developing knowledge of their own and others’ wellbeing, perhaps with a view to continuing in Further Education.
Since March 2018 we have delivered over 400 Wellbeing courses and the feedback from the learners is always very positive, and recognition how to look after themselves better. In a few cases the course has highlighted in a number of individuals that need medical intervention has been required.
