Postgraduate CPD units in nursing, midwifery and social work

We offer a wide range of Level 7 units for health professionals looking to improve their skills and further their careers through CPD.

Our CPD units are available to both those working in nursing, midwifery and social work and other health practitioners. 

You can study individual units as standalone short courses, or build up the credits earned through individual units to contribute towards a postgraduate award.

"I felt well supported by my tutor and the lecturers were very knowledgeable in their area of teaching. I liked the course leaders' use of external speakers in specialist areas."
