Subject Area: Education

The focus of this course is on health and well-being in schools: the nature and practice of health education; its relationship to health promotion and pupil/staff well-being; its affinity with subjects such as personal and social development and physical education; its strengths and limitations in promoting health and health behaviour change; the teacher’s role in health education; the role of other professionals (e.g. the school nurse and community educators); and key health education topics (including diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption, drug and substance use, mental health and sexual health). The course will address models, theories, and approaches that offer the basis for high quality educational practice that contributes to health and well-being.
