The Healthy FE and Skills Programme aims to improve the health and wellbeing of those who study or work in the further education (FE) and skills sector. It isn’t about creating something new: it’s about working with FE and skills sector providers to make the health and wellbeing of staff and students an integral part of all aspects of FE life.
The Healthy FE and Skills Programme is sector-led, and it seeks to support Healthy FE and skills sector providers in their role as community leaders. It will enhance their ability to cater for the health and wellbeing of staff and students through tools and guidance, and fostering partnerships with your local health services. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
