What is it?

The objective of this qualification is to provide learners with the knowledge, confidence and skills to support individuals who are thinking of making a health behaviour change.

It will enable learners to understand the importance of effective communication in building rapport with individuals. It will also help learners to understand how to work with individuals to increase their motivation to make a behaviour change and explore the factors that hinder and facilitate that change.

Assessment is through a multiple choice examination which now consists of 35 questions. Exemplar lesson plans and teaching slides will be available from the online shop from mid-May.

This qualification replaces the Level 2 Award in Understanding Behaviour Change.

Who is it for?
Learners will learn how to engage with individuals for the purpose of very brief interventions such as Making Every Contact Count (MECC) and develop an action plan with individuals to make and sustain behaviour change.
