Public Health Practitioners Accredited Programme 2017

The Faculty of Public Health is developing a series of workshops to support public health practitioners who wish to develop their professional competence and expertise.

This programme will provide six half-day workshops to support public health workers who are:

  • Engaging with a programme of accredited continuing professional development (CPD) to further their knowledge and skills
  • Gain knowledge and understanding about public health eg. those who have recently moved into public health from another discipline/area of work
  • Considering UK Public Health Register (UKPHR) practitioner registration in the next few years
  • Developing their portfolio for UKPHR practitioner registration.

To find out more about the programme and when the next workshops will take place, please contact

These sessions are accredited by Skills for Justice at Level 6, the level required for UKPHR practitioner registration, and practitioners can opt to submit work for assessment or to receive a certificate of
attendance.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation, also known as regulated qualifications, is those qualifications that are reviewed, recognised and monitored by regulatory bodies in order to make sure that they meet specific criteria
and quality standards.

Accreditation is:

  • A mark of quality that prospective students and employers understand and value
  • An opportunity to produce a piece of work that reflects the UK practitioner standards used to assess practitioners for professional registration
  • A high-quality benchmarking process that is defined and delivered in partnership with SFJ Awards of Skills for Justice (Enterprise) Ltd.

In order to achieve accreditation through the Accredited Learning Programme (ALP), the learner must complete four modules. Assessment will then be based on written reflection around the modules completed.
