Schools@Once: Training European teachers to integrate health in the school day

 

If you are a preschool and kindergarten teacher, this online programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and motivation you need to create healthy habits among children aged 3-6, so that they grow up to be healthy adults.

The platform provides you with a top-class, 360-degree, holistic approach to health through tailored, self-assessed training that allows you to move at your own pace. You will need about 15 hours to cover the training modules, excluding self-study.

Registrations open in January 2022.
