Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The School of Health Sciences realises the importance of investing in the professional development of our healthcare practitioners to enable them to deliver high quality, evidence-based health care. As such, the School offers a range of credit and non-credit bearing continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities. The credit-bearing modules are offered both as part of the School’s taught postgraduate programmes and as standalone modules.

Our CPD offerings assume a multi-disciplinary approach to education in order to support the changing and advancing roles of health care practitioners in modern care settings.

Furthermore, they equip health professionals with the appropriate knowledge, skills and behaviours to deliver safe and high-quality care to their patients whilst ensuring an integrated approach to health care delivery that can be tailored to local populations.

Our profession-specific modules enable professionals to focus their development in highly specialised areas of practice.

Whether the practitioner takes a more generic or specialised approach to their learning, they will be provided with opportunities to discuss “next steps” in their professional learning journey.

Some CPD will be hybrid in nature, consisting of some face-to-face teaching (either virtually or on campus) with online study whilst others will be based entirely online. Either approach will ensure that the programme is more accessible and attractive for the healthcare practitioners that they have been tailored for.

The School of Health Sciences is also committed to working in collaboration with local NHS partners and other agencies to develop bespoke CPD opportunities to meet the specific professional development needs of their workforces.
