PHE’s review of the public health workforce found that the VCSE sector is a central component of this workforce and a strong driver of the social movement for better health. The sector has strong ties with local communities and particular populations, and therefore entering into dialogue with the VCSE sector is fundamental to understanding the requirements of the wider public health workforce.
This webinar will be an open discussion, which will allow PHE to better understand how the VCSE sector is working to protect and improve the public’s health, and how PHE can usefully support and enable the workforce in these activities.
What is a webinar?
A webinar is an online seminar. You will usually need a computer that is connected to the internet, and a telephone. You will see PowerPoint slides presented on your computer screen, and there is usually an opportunity to type in a ‘chat’ box at the side of the screen if you have any questions. In order to hear the presenter and participants, you can either phone in to the meeting, or request that the meeting automatically phones you, which is free, even to a mobile. You hear the meeting audio over your phone, like a conference call, while watching your screen. You can usually ask questions or make comments if you want to, but you don’t have to if you want to just listen.
