Edge Hill is a leading university in the UK for professional development. Our portfolio of courses offer many opportunities for those working, or seeking to work, in education or health and social care to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills and keep up-to-date with the latest developments in their specialist area.
We recognise you may have existing commitments to full or part-time employment, so we strive to provide a learning experience which is flexible but also designed to meet your professional needs and learning requirements.
Many of our professional development programmes enable you to construct a programme to suit you or allow you to study individual modules as required.
Our training, support and resources are student-focused and suitable for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, including those with non-traditional qualifications or experience and those who may not have studied for a number of years.
