On this practical Postgraduate Certificate (Level 9) in Workplace Wellness, participants will learn everything that they need to develop and coordinate effective programmes that align an organisation’s values to employee wellness, ensuring engagement and buy-in from senior management and staff alike. This course offers the opportunity to up-skill in the area of workplace wellbeing and takes up a variety of roles related to employee wellness. It may also be an excellent addition to a primary degree in HR or Business for those wishing to reorient their careers or re-enter the workforce.
Fundamentals of Workplace Wellness
This module sets the context for the programme by exploring the role of health promotion within the workplace and the nature of wellbeing. We will explore the business case for wellness programmes and the fundamental characteristics of successful wellness programmes based on research and case study examples from leading organisations.
This module explores what a culture of health looks like and how to establish and build one, or engage in a change process towards one. Students will examine the critical role of leadership support, strategic communication, the social and physical environment, and policies and practices in building a culture of health. These critical factors will be explored using evidence from benchmarking research and case studies from award-winning organisations in the area of employee wellness internationally and within Ireland.
Project and Policy Implementation
In this module, students will review the current policy and legislation landscape in Ireland through a workplace health promotion lens. Individually they will craft a workplace wellness operating plan and in project teams, they will develop solutions for a real-world challenge being faced by a host organisation.
Classes will take place in person in Dublin at Tangent, Trinity's Ideas Workspace, and online. Please note there are two timetable options for this course: daytime and evening.
