Everyone should have an understanding of public health and the factors that have improved public health. This e-learning is suitable for anyone that wants to gain an understanding of how, at an individual level, lifestyle choices and behaviours can have a positive and negative effect on health.

The e-learning provides a convenient way to study towards the Level 1 Award in Health Improvement, and can be used to support delivery of the new Level 2 Award for Young Health Champions as part of a blended learning approach.

The programme covers:

  • What is meant by health and wellbeing

  • The various factors that have led to the improvement of public health

  • How lifestyle choices and behaviours can have a positive and negative effect on health

  • How individuals can make changes to their own lifestyle and behaviour in order to improve their health.



  • E-Learning Course: £30

  • Assessment: £21 for standalone qualification (NA if taken as part of Level 2 Award for Young Health Champions)

The programme is completed in eight hours, and is worth 8 CPD points (8 CPD points for food and hygiene, 6 CPD points for health improvement). On successful completion of the e-learning programme, users can request an RSPH CPD certificate. Please note that this is an e-learning programme only.

To obtain the RSPH Level 1 Award in Health Improvement, you will need to sit an invigilated exam in the RSPH head office in London. If you wish to complete the assessment elsewhere in the UK, please purchase the e-learning “without assessment” option on the online shop and contact an alternative centre. Find out more about the assessment options available here.
