Would you like to actively contribute to the quality of life of others through providing lifestyle programs? Want to learn how to design, implement and evaluate health and leisure activities and programs for clients in residential facilities and/or in community agencies and day centres? You could be ready to study for the Phillips Institute Diploma of Leisure and Health.
This important qualification will equip you with the knowledge and skills for such a satisfying role. You may also be responsible for other workers; or work under professional supervision or as a sole practitioner.
This is the Nationally Recognised Training qualification which may be offered elsewhere at a much higher cost to you.
Phillips Institute’s is the same course, but offers
better value without the future debt.
You can join this course at any time with our facilitator-led online or distance learning system, combined with placement or work-based learning – no need to wait for the next intake. Our fees are very competitive and you can even choose to pay as you go, lowering your risk and allowing you to manage your program of study to suit your lifestyle – talk to us about our direct debit facility.
