University Centre South Devon has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
A foundation degree is a degree-level qualification that takes two years to complete, and is equivalent to the first two years of a traditional honours degree. Foundation degrees focus on relevant, work-based skills within a particular career route or profession, and are designed to increase employability and progression opportunities. Employers are actively involved in the development of foundation degree programmes to ensure you are ready for employment when you complete your studies. At the end of a foundation degree you have the option to ‘top-up’ your qualification with an additional third year of study to convert it into a full honours degree.
The need to educate people in improving their health and preventing disease has never been greater, with the promotion of health and wellbeing high on the government agenda to address current health concerns. This means that there are more opportunities than ever before for health and wellbeing specialists, who are capable of engaging with communities to effect lasting lifestyle changes.
The course develops a detailed understanding of health and wellbeing, providing knowledge of nutrition, diet, healthy choices, behavioural changes and techniques for lifestyle intervention. You’ll also be considering the key skills to put this knowledge into practice and how to operate as an effective practitioner and promoter of health and wellbeing within your community.
