Healthy Weight Coach e-learning
This is an opportunity for professionals working locally to support residents to achieve a healthier weight by training to become a healthy weight coach.
A healthy weight coach will engage and support people living with overweight or obesity to help them make positive changes to their health and health behaviours to promote a healthier weight. You will be well-placed to signpost or, where appropriate, refer residents to our local weight management programmes.
Supporting people to move towards a healthier weight can have important benefits to the health and wellbeing of the individual seeking support, as well as reducing ill-health related to overweight and obesity.
On completion of the elearning programme, you will have the skills and confidence to have meaningful conversations to support people to move towards a healthier weight.
