Through workshops, lectures, and supported assessments, you will be empowered to develop a collaborative culture within your organisation which builds capacity of the collective workforce to effectively deliver the aspirations of “A Healthier Nation”.

This Preventative Health and Health Equity (Distance Learning) programme is the first to be offered under the Bangor University lead ALPHAcademy (Applied Learning for Preventative Health Academy) which is part of the Welsh Government Intensive Learning Academy (ILA) programme. 

This initiative has seen the development of hubs at Welsh Universities to offer research and education to support the professional capacity and system leadership which is fit for the challenges for health and social care systems for today and the future. 


This programme from Bangor University, is likely to appeal to those already in employment as part of their regular CPD or for the purposes of upskilling. This means that graduates will be better equipped to continue or progress in their current career. 

Those who are seeking to pursue a new career will have access to a wide range of careers that focus on preventative health. Having knowledge of factors relating to health equity and social inclusion, they will be well-equipped to be leaders across services and sectors, including health and social care organisations, and in statutory and non-statutory sectors
