Level 2 Health
What is Health Education?
In Health Education students consider their well-being, attitudes, and values, and work towards promoting the health of their community. Students have the opportunity to participate in a range of tasks, including considering ways to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations, and learning effective ways to communicate to help develop healthy relationships.
