Continuing Professional Development Modules for Health and Social Care Practitioners


Our wide range of CPD modules below can be studied individually or as part of an undergraduate or postgraduate award.  Please note that this list does not imply that Post Qualification Learning funds through CPD Apply will be available.

Many modules start in September and February meaning that if you miss the September intake you do not always need to wait a year to begin studying.

NHS Health Education North West-Funded Modules

NHS Health Education North West funds Post-Qualification Learning for professional health and social care staff under their remit. Post-Qualification Learning follows a modular structure and a limited choice of modules can be studied on a stand alone basis or towards a post-qualification award.

Staff should contact their Line Manager and Trust Lead to discuss availability  and how to apply.  Please note that the CPD Apply NW application tool is no longer in operation.
