School Nurse, SHWT
“That was such an amazing course and I would strongly recommend for it to be converted to a postgraduate credit-bearing course.”
Council Worker, SHWT
“I have found this course very useful and with the knowledge that I have got, I feel confident about doing something for myself and those I come across in my work. I am now familiar with services in the authority which can support those who have excess weight.”
School Nurse, SHWT
“This was an excellent and well-organised course.”
“With this module, in my first week of learning, I have found myself more confident and I am adding more questions for eating habits and behaviour. From now on, I will see obesity as a problem caused by a variety of factors and not just an energy balance.”
Public Health, SHWT
“Having done one module in this course, it has made a difference to my practice already with different methods of communicating information to clients especially around the psychology of obesity.”
“The course was really well put together. Thank you!”
Public Health, SHWT Public Health, SHWT
