Launch of Community Health & Wellbeing Worker apprenticeship standard

Community Health and Wellbeing Workers are a rapidly expanding workforce supporting the increasing emphasis across government departments on improving the health of local people and communities by preventing poor health and tackling inequalities. Their work is informed by the wider social determinants of health, such as the social, cultural, political, economic, commercial and environmental factors that shape the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.

 

Typical job titles include:

 

• Health Trainer

• Care or Service Navigator

• Social Prescribing Link Worker

• Community Connector

• Live Well Coach

• Community Health Champion

 

Public Health England (PHE) has been working with a Trailblazer group of employers to develop a Community Health and Wellbeing Worker apprenticeship at Level 3.  The standard and funding band have been approved, the end-point assessment is nearing approval and we are now in the process of developing an implementation toolkit.

PHE and Health Education England (HEE) are co-hosting a free, online information event for employers to find out more on Wednesday, 15th September 2021 (1.30-3pm).  More information is provided in the flyer attached. The link to register for a place is: https://forms.office.com/r/XK4LqdVrrX.  Registration closes on 13th September.
