CoA Poster Intake 4 2022

Health promotion course an eye-opener


Students who participated in our last online short course in health promotion say the course gave them a better grasp of health promotion, as well as the skills and knowledge to help them in their everyday mahi. 

In their evaluation of the Certificate of Achievement in Introducing Health Promotion (CoA) they also shared about how the course allowed them to expand their networks, by meeting others in the health sector.

“I can’t pick one part. The whole thing was valuable,” wrote one student about the CoA, which is jointly offered by HPF and the Manukau Institute of Technology.

Another student wrote: "I thoroughly enjoyed the course, teachings and meeting other people from around Aotearoa.  People who have been doing this for some time and those of us who have just begun our journeys."

If you too would like to learn more about the principles, concepts and practice of health promotion, and expand your networks within the health sector, secure your space now and register HERE.
