The Public Health Practitioners Accredited programme (PHPAP) provides an excellent opportunity to develop professional competence and expertise for public health practitioners and wider public health workforce.

The programme is currently delivered virtually through a series of six half-day workshops, allowing participants to take on studies at a level and pace to suit their professional life.

The learning sessions support attendees in the acquisition and application of knowledge and understanding required by the UK Public Health Practitioner (UKPHR) standards and have been mapped to the UKPHR practitioners’ standards (2018 edition). 

You can download information for the PHPAP in 2021/22 here.



The Faculty of Public Health is proud to be an Approved Centre for Skills For Justice (SFJ) Awards, now delivering a range of Regulated Qualifications.
