Health and Social Care CPD courses
Continuing Professional Development
Whether you are looking to progress your career or develop your skills, we have a number of continuing personal and professional development courses and postgraduate programmes for Healthcare and Social Care professionals.
Our healthcare short courses and CPD programmes cover a range of areas and are suitable for post-qualifying professionals looking to continue their personal and professional development, building their knowledge, skills, and professional practice.
The CPD programmes that we offer have been designed to provide a flexible approach to study. Students can either undertake standalone modules that are assessed and upon successful completion, students will receive credits towards a BSc or MSc. Or they can be study days that can be used for revalidation. Students can accumulate a number of study days, plus an assessment, to receive credits towards a BSc or MSc.
