Online Health, Social and Community Work courses

As a health and social care professional, you know it’s vital to maintain your CPD but it can be challenging. Our online courses enable you to fit studying around your shift patterns and other commitments, allowing you to study when and where it suits you.

We want to help develop your professional practice, so you can improve outcomes for patients. Our courses range from single modules to diplomas and degrees. They cover current issues such as integrative care and inter-agency working, dementia care and mental health.

We’ve taught the full spectrum of health and social care professionals: from care assistants to clinical supervisors and those in charge of leading quality and service improvements.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind in letting others know of my studying experience with the University of Derby Online Learning. I will be forever grateful and will always respect my tutors for the rest of my life for making me so proud and inspiring me.
