Intermediate Course: Health and Wellbeing
Want to advance your professional development & support wellbeing in your heritage organisation? Are you already delivering health and wellbeing programmes but are looking for ways to improve or build upon this practice? Then GEM's Intermediate Course: Health and Wellbeing might be for you!
In partnership with National Alliance for Museums Health and Wellbeing (NAMHW), the course Health and Wellbeing has been developed as part of GEM's ACE-funded Learning & Sharing Centre project. Health and Wellbeing is one of five GEM intermediate courses that will address the core competencies identified by GEM, to help raise professional standards in the museum, heritage and cultural sector.
The course is aimed at supporting the professional development of mid-career heritage educators involved with health and wellbeing.
GEM says, “Not just one-day workshops!” This course will combine a one-day workshop with a few short activities to be completed prior to and after the workshop, which will reinforce and embed your learning. Working with a passionate peer group, the 6-7-week course will enable participants to reflect on current work to:
identify and overcome challenges,
reframe other provision as health and wellbeing programmes,
and gain inspiration to set up new projects.
The first Health and Wellbeing course will take place in Leicester, with the one-day workshop taking place on Monday 10 July 2017. The two other courses will take place in London (27 November 2017) and Manchester (24 January 2018).
Places are limited, so book your place now! For more details please visit the GEM website.
