The ambition of our school is to train aspiring individuals to become formally accredited Public Health Specialists with the knowledge, skills and attitude to be leaders in health and social care, and who are competent and instrumental in delivering activities to improve health, prevent disease, and tackle inequalities in health.
To achieve our ambition, we aim to:
Our Head of School, Val Barker, and Training Programme Director, Susy Stirling, lead delivery of the training programme, with support from educational, academic and project supervisors across the region. Training is mainly provided through placements at a variety of locations, including local authorities throughout Yorkshire, regional universities, Public Health England, healthcare organisations and other opportunities out of the region. More details of these placements can be found in the "Training and education" section of the "Current registrars" tab.
