Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

At the School of Health Sciences, we understand the importance of investing in the professional development of our healthcare workers. We’ve thus cultivated a multitude of specially-tailored programmes that not only enable healthcare professionals to further develop their skills and career prospects, but which consequently improves the quality of the service that the British healthcare sector provides the public too. Our programmes facilitate the development of competent and dynamic specialists that have extensive theoretical knowledge and vital clinical experience in relation to their field of study. All of our courses are mapped in accordance with the standards and recommendations set by official professional bodies, meaning all of our graduates’ educational experiences are wholly appropriate for wherever their professional journeys may take them.

Our programmes are split between a range of credit and non-credit bearing opportunities. The majority of modules offered on our postgraduate programmes are also available as credit-bearing standalone courses which can be taken singularly for CPD.

We are flexible in the way we educate. Our offerings often adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to students’ development which mimics the modern healthcare environment where various roles are often intrinsically linked together.

There are, however, profession specific modules available though – these have been designed for students who would like to concentrate all of their efforts precisely on one area of study.
