Delivery of our training programme is led by Head of School and the Training Programme Directors along with support from educational, academic and project supervisors across the region. Training is mainly provided through placements at a variety of locations:
- Our school is based in Leeds, but we provide training opportunities across the whole of North, East, South and West Yorkshire, incorporating large cities, smaller towns and rural settings, and including populations of significant affluence and marked deprivation.
- Our registrars gain public health experience within many settings, including local authorities, national and local NHS organisations, academic institutions and Public Health England.
- We also support more diverse training opportunities, reflecting the expanding role of public health across different organisations. Examples include regular placements at West Yorkshire Police and international work in Swaziland. We currently have 40 registrars on our training programme.
