CCH win Southwark Healthy Weight Training Contract
Innovative online education company to support London Borough attain a healthy weight
London, UK: The College of Contemporary Health, an online college specialising in innovative e-Learning for health professionals in weight management and obesity care, are excited to announce that we have secured the opportunity to partner with the London Borough of Southwark and develop online courses for health professionals and community members in the Borough.
Southwark has some of the highest rates of obesity in the country with 47% of all adults and 43% of children in year 6 classified as overweight and obese. Overweight and obesity not only impacts the quality of life of Southwark residents but also on their productivity and health.
Southwark Council is committed to delivering its vision to make Southwark a safer and healthier place and CCH is delighted to be collaborating with Southwark to improve the health of the local population and to help them achieve that goal. CCH will do this by providing a bespoke e-learning offering for the Borough.
CCH are experienced providers of continuing professional development (CPD) accredited e- Learning and will be developing 2 unique courses for health professionals and community members across the London Borough of Southwark.
I am delighted that CCH has secured the tender for this exciting and innovative project within the Borough of Southwark. With fewer than 0.1% of health professionals in the UK having any training in the critical public health area of obesity, it is great to be partnering with an organisation who is keen to make a difference. We are excited to be offered the opportunity to deliver courses that will better equip health and community members in Southwark.
