This course meets the educational and career developmental needs of health, environmental and social care professionals and managers working in settings across the spectrum: NHS, local authority and non-statutory sectors. The course is designed to give grounding in public health theory and practice, provide a mechanism for analysing and instituting change in practice, and to support public health leadership and registration.
The forum for learning and practice provided by this course is particularly pertinent in a time of change. The delivery of public health in England will be radically altered as the result of recent government white papers such as Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS with its proposals to establish a national public health service, Public Health England, and the consultation document Transparency in Outcomes: NHS Outcomes Framework. The white paper Healthy Lives, Healthy People, Our Strategy for Public Health in England describes plans for a radical transformation of the public health service in England with the shift of organisational responsibility for framing and delivering the public health strategic agenda at a local population level moving from the NHS to local authorities, through the appointment of joint directors of public health and the establishment of local health and wellbeing boards.
The course is designed to cover much of the ground required for the Faculty of Public Health Part A examination and the UK Public Health Register, but does not offer exemption from those processes.

The course is open to all professionals and managers who are in a position to deliver improvements in population health. A first degree is not essential, but evidence of at least three years work experience in an environment broadly related to public and environmental health, and capacity to study at masters level are required.
