Work related stress is an increasingly common aspect of modern life and is identified as a considerable risk to employee mental well-being across Europe (Wells, 2011, EASHW, 2014). Numerous psychosocial web based 
interventions have been developed in response to this. However, targeted psycho-social interventions aimed at enhancing worker resilience and their management of work-related stress are needed if the issue is to be tackled 
effectively (Wells et al. 2011). This paper documents the development of two digital platform programmes, namely ROSE and DELAROSE, which deliver tailored interventions and act as valuable and accessible supportsfor workers 
in the health and social care sectors. The paper also describes the process of transitioning the ROSE into the educational DELAROSE programme in an effort to incentivise workers in these sectors to engage with the programme, and provide them with an accredited academic award from one of three Higher Education Institutions (HEI’s) across Europe in recognition oftheir learning.
