Health education in schools The challenge of teacher training 1 D IDIER J OURDAN 1. In this book, “Teacher Training” refers to all the activities aiming at preparing school staff for a professional role as a reflective practitioner. It doesn’t mean training staff to undertake relatively routine tasks. It corresponds to “teacher education” more and more used in American publications.

Preface For all individuals, health is a resource that needs to be maintained and protected. In order to achieve this, all aspects of health must be considered, as should all the factors that determine it, which can be biological, psychological, social, economic, cultural and environmental. In the Ottawa Charter, it was shown that this holistic view of health, which is akin to “well-being”, was not the sole responsibility of the health authorities, and that all institu- tions and regulatory provisions that are involved in how people live must take their share of responsibility. In their role as places in which people live, schools play a large role in the well-being and health of the children and young people within them. Data from the international scientific literature show the impor- tance of schools as places where health promotion happens, not just because an entire cohort attends a school for several years, but also because there has been shown to be close links between health and education. Promoting pupil health helps with educational attainment: increasing levels of education helps to improve levels of health. In France, the National Institute for Prevention and Health Education (INPES) is tasked with developing health education in the environments in which people live, and with developing training in health education throughout the country. INPES’ involvement in schools has been formalised in a partnership agreement with the ministry of education that was drawn up in 2003, and a 2007 agreement with the French asso-

The partnership between INPES and schools

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
