Continuing Professional Development and Learning Beyond Registration courses

If you're seeking to build on your wealth of knowledge as a healthcare professional, we can offer you bespoke modules in a supportive environment. We have modules to suit nurses, occupational therapists, hand therapists, radiographers, psychotherapists, and those working within complementary therapies.

In order to study what best suits your personal and professional needs, you can arrange for an individual consultation to discuss your options.

There are various options for your funding and study:

Continuing Professional Development self-funded modules

We have CPD modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels (levels 6, 7 and 8), which have all been tailored to meet the needs of practitioners and managers working within the health and social care sectors.

CPD modules

Learning Beyond Registration funded modules

We are pleased to confirm that the Learning Beyond Registration (LBR) funding has now been confirmed for the 2017/18 academic year. We will be in touch shortly with all those who have applied for courses but haven’t heard from us. If you haven’t applied, please speak to your line manager in the first instance.

For some students, it's possible to access learning beyond registration funding to study with us. Find out more or speak to our dedicated LBR team to see if you are eligible for funding, on 01332 591992 or lbr@derby.ac.uk.

Once we’ve had confirmation from your manager that they are in agreement to release you for module study, your allocation of a place on the module is reliant upon sufficient LBR funding remaining for your organisation.
