CPD Short Courses

We are pleased to offer a wide range of online CPD certified courses in partnership with the Skills Network.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is an excellent way to maintain up-to-date knowledge and build skills. Whether for professional or personal growth, our online CPD courses offer a quick and easy way to access learning and development in more than 35 subjects.

Many professions require their staff to be lifelong learners by demonstrating an agreed amount of CPD hours each year. Our CPD courses offer the perfect opportunity to evidence CPD training because each course, upon completion, allows learners to gain a recognised CPD certificate.

Learners can study from home or the workplace, and can complete one course subject in one day or less.

CPD courses are also a great way to explore new subject areas and develop new interests in a short amount of time. Our short online courses will allow individuals to expand their skills base, explore possible career pathways and add depth to their CVs.

In partnership with the Skills Network, these courses can all be studied 100% online and upon enrolling, learners will be granted log in details to access the course materials on the Skills Network website and work through the course content at their own pace.
