The Course

By 2024, over 2.5 million more people across England will benefit from social prescribing; a ‘prescription’ aimed at improving health and wellbeing via the community. Primary care networks and wider CCG/STP areas desperately need dedicated professionals, who specialise across health, social care and the community, to engage and connect local people to the right, non-clinical support. The type that improves outcomes and demonstrates local impact. The Level 3 Qualification in Social Prescribing is the UK's only recognised qualification in social prescribing. This interactive course brings together the latest research and knowledge from leaders at the forefront of social prescribing and equips new and existing social prescribers with not just the practical skills but the ability to transform your organisation's approach to social prescribing within just six months.

What Learners Say

"Today I had a really tough last visit with a couple who have experienced quite a bit of trauma over the last 2 years. Without the things I’ve learnt over the course, I honestly think I’d have struggled to help them make any steps forward. But... I was able to put into practice elements of what we’ve been taught in a way I’d never quite worked before."

- Sarah, Learner (July 2019)

"I've really enjoyed the course so far. The different units are interesting and I'm getting a better understanding and knowledge of how social prescribing can work by looking further beneath the surface. There are plenty of practical group activities too which helps with what I'm doing on a day-to-day basis."

- Dominic Rhodes, Learner (July 2019) & Health & Wellbeing Coordinator at East Riding of Yorkshire Council
