Training opportunities around health and wellbeing
In South Australia, there are several training options to teach you how to lead, design and implement health and wellbeing practices that will impact positively on health and business outcomes. There are programs to suit any budget, expertise and commitment level.
TAFE SA and Gramac Solutions currently run a one-day training course which provides the strategies, tools and access to services and resources that will enable businesses to implement successful, cost effective health and wellbeing programs. This evidence-based interactive training package has been developed for any staff member who is or will be leading or implementing a workplace health and wellbeing program in their workplace. The training is run as a stand-alone short course, but participants can choose to undertake assessments to gain accreditation and contribute to a Diploma or Certificate IV qualification.
Here’s what a recent attendee thought of the course:
“The ‘Healthy Workers - Healthy Futures’ program is fantastic. I was really impressed with the recent course I attended and believe it has given me the underpinning knowledge to progress with further development and implementation of health and wellbeing programs” (WHS Coordinator, Maritime Constructions).
