For a number of years, RSPH has given awards to learners who have achieved the highest score that year for their qualification.
This year these awards have been expanded to include centres, tutors and learners taking qualifications that are not assessed by an examination.They have also been renamed collectively as the Hygeia Awards after the Greek goddess of health and wellbeing.
Winning a Hygeia Award is recognition of outstanding achievement. Past winners have used their award to increase their employment prospects, while recognition from peers in the workplace has also proved invaluable.
