Work-based learning and CPD

If you are currently working in a health care setting we have a range of courses designed to enable you to progress your career including accredited CPD, apprenticeships and postgraduate degrees.

Apprenticeships can be an entry route into a profession to enable you to become qualified, or for more experienced staff we have a range of postgraduate degree apprenticeships.

Many employers are able to pay for staff apprenticeships through their apprenticeship levy funds, so there is no cost to the student.
