    Course type


    Courses that provide an essential first step in developing knowledge, skills and capacity across a range of subject disciplines, qualification levels and clinical/non-clinical approaches. They could be a pre-requisite for further training or a taster or general interest course.


    Courses that provide a more detailed and in-depth pathway to enhancing knowledge and skills. These courses cover a range of subject disciplines, qualification levels and clinical/non-clinical approaches and will likely require evidence of previous study or experience and have eligibility criteria in the application process.

    Applied training

    An approach that allows students to engage in direct application of skills, theories and models in real-life situations, such as supervised working with families.

    Clinical training

    Clinical training aims to ensure that healthcare professionals are prepared for specific roles through expert instruction and direct client experience. It is often a required qualification (depending on the career pathway chosen).


    CPD or Continuing Professional Development is a general term used to describe the learning activities that professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities and careers, and – in some cases – gain a qualification. CPD can include lectures, workshops, self-study online courses, remotely-delivered training and more.


    Conferences, seminars, presentations and other live events, some of which may only be accessible as recordings.
