Occupational Health (OH) plays a significant role in preventing ill health-related unemployment and job loss amongst the working-age workforce. The important role of OH has been highlighted by various stakeholders through the Health is Everyone’s Business (HIEB) consultation.

To develop the Occupational Health Workforce, the School is facilitating a second round of funding for OH qualifications. This is for courses taking place within the 2023/24 financial year, i.e., all courses must start before April 2024. 

Funding is for nurses and doctors and will be on a first come first serve basis. Previous unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to reapply.

Only the courses in the list below are approved for inclusion.

The NSOH is pleased to announce a second round of the funding program for OH courses within or that can be paid within, the 2023/24 financial year.

We are reaching out to those who were unsuccessful in the last round or applied after the deadline with an opportunity to reapply.

There were several reasons individuals were unsuccessful and you may wish to review and resubmit your application against these:

  • No right to work in the UK
  • Not residing in England
  • Not agreeing to pay for any exam resits
  • Stating they have an employer who funds or partially funds OH courses
  • Already have an OH Qualification


Those unsuccessful candidates that applied for an HEI course, but subsequently commenced the course, are advised to apply if their fee is outstanding which can be paid within the financial year.
