To get an idea of what you will gain out of this course see what previous students have had to say in their evaluations of the course.

Many students said the course gave them a better grasp of health promotion, as well as the skills and knowledge to help them in their everyday mahi.

Comments ranged from ‘learning the difference between health education and health promotion’ to ‘learning more about how I can apply the Ottawa Charter, Te Tiriti O Waitangi and health promotion values and ethics in my work’.

“I can’t pick one part. The whole thing was valuable,” wrote one student, while another said ‘this is awesome Kaupapa! Loved it!’

Another student wrote that: ‘Understanding the determinants of health has been great because it has highlighted things like equity, and what is fair for all, may still disadvantage whānau if they lack a foundational security and stability.’

Others also shared about how the course allowed them to expand their networks, by meeting others in the health sector.
