HAT Courses

HAT offers a range of different courses, each adaptable to suit your specific needs – our courses are truly bespoke. Our main course “Graduate Certificate in Health Action Training” offers learners a robust and committed programme of workshops where they can develop their skills in our tried and tested approach.

Learners can go further and become a HAT certified trainer through our “Train the trainer” approach. Candidates who wish to become HAT certified trainers will take part in two further courses, “Health Action Training and Issues in Health Communication” and “Teaching and Assessment for Health Action Training” where attendees will learn about the key challenges facing healthcare staff, sharing their own experiences, and working together to find new ways to overcome and tackle these challenges using the HAT approach. HAT certified trainers will be welcomed and supported by HAT to deliver their own short courses, following the HAT method, as well as delivering our core “Graduate Certificate in Health Action Training” course.

We also offer a variety of in-house short courses which take a closer look at specific issues in healthcare communication.
