Teenager/Young Adults Cancer Care

Coventry University works closely with Teenage Cancer Trust - the leading UK charity in this field – as well as professional organisations and clinical experts to offer programmes specifically for those involved with cancer patients who are teenagers or young adults.  

We offer a range of accredited and non-accredited educational opportunities for those working in the field of Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) Cancer Care. We have been at the forefront of providing academically accredited courses and modules in this field since 2006, using a variety of delivery models such as traditional classroom teaching, online learning, and blended learning.

What we offer

We have developed a Free E-learning Webapp to help those new to working with TYA’s with cancer understand the key principles of are when addressing their unique needs. It features contributions from expert health professionals and fictitious blogs of young people experiencing cancer. There is a self-test quiz with a downloadable certificate of completion to aid in your Continuous Professional Development.

Funding and scholarships

Teenage Cancer Trust offers funding that covers the cost of some modules and courses to staff working with TYAs with cancer, to enable them to complete accredited academic modules for their own professional development.

Stephen Sutton Scholarships are also available to provide funding to support the development of highly committed individuals to promote best practice in teenage/young adult cancer care.
