We recognise that Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is fundamental in the development of your career.

In addition to being a requirement set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, we understand that the setting in which you practice is constantly changing, and you are increasingly expected to develop new skills and knowledge that will further enhance the quality of patient care.

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of short course modules to assist health care professionals using a blend of teaching methods, from study days on campus to online distance learning.
