Meeting Your Training Needs

Public health training and development is at the heart of all our work. Our training programmes have been developed over many years using a wide range of experts to provide high quality courses that meet the needs of different audiences.

The aim of the PHAST Education, Training & Development Strategy is to build public health capacity and capability within the public, private and voluntary sectors so that a greater number of people have the knowledge and skills to improve the health of the population, promote public health and reduce health inequalities in the UK and internationally.

PHAST hosts the Health Knowledge website which contains the whole specialist knowledge requirements for public health which is a great resource for specialists and practitioners. www.healthknowledge.org.uk.

Our courses and events are all available to individual organisations on a bespoke basis. At times we also hold courses open for general access and this information is available on the Current Courses page of the PHAST website, or call 020 3479 5250.

PHAST has delivered over 100 training events ranging from portfolio development programmes for specialists and practitioners, Part A revision courses, leadership courses and many workshops such as the acclaimed Health is Everyone's Business, which won awards and the latest development Achieving Value in Hellish Times which is in great demand.


Many of the training courses offered by PHAST may be commissioned by any organisation, whether NHS, Local Government or the voluntary sector. If you are interested, or would like further details, contact us via email, training@phast.org.uk.

PHAST can deliver a wide variety of other courses which organisations have identified as useful for their staff.
