Community Health and Wellbeing Worker Course March Cohort Invitation

Did you know that health inequalities, lack of measures to prevent ill-health and premature death, and inadequate access to healthcare and social care services are on the rise across communities in England?

At Buttercups Training, we believe that to overcome these barriers to quality healthcare and wellbeing, it is essential to build a workforce of trained professionals who are dedicated to driving positive change in improving the health and wellbeing of all communities across England.

Therefore, for organisations like you who want to drive positive change in the health and wellbeing of communities across England, we have developed a top-tier Level 3 Community Health and Wellbeing Worker (CHWW) Apprenticeship.

The CHWW is not role or sector-specific, and can be utilised by the NHS, private healthcare organisations, local government, voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations, community welfare organisations, and private sector organisations. If your organisation wants to make a positive difference in the health and wellbeing of your local communities, this could be the programme for you.

Read on to learn more about the CHWW apprenticeship.

The CHWW apprenticeship is accredited by the Personalised Care Institute (PCI) and the overall aim is to equip the apprentice with the skills, knowledge and confidence to engage with individuals and groups within their community, identify local health priorities and work in partnership to promote positive, lasting change. These apprentices, based across the country will help to improve the health of the nation, by making real change at a local level.

The course content is delivered through blended learning model and uses our bespoke online learning platform called the b-Hive, which enables the apprentice and their employer to track progress in real-time and provides state-of-the-art accessibility features for those who may need additional learning support.
