Professional Development is essential for anyone looking to enhance their career prospects.

We offer quality professional development courses that are employment focused and at graduate/postgraduate levels.  We see students as partners in learning who are actively involved in the course process through access to relevant materials, current research and highly qualified professional support.

Our excellent range of courses are flexible, as the modular programmes are designed to fit around professional working commitments; and facilitate the development of up-to-date skills necessary for current educators.

Our suite of Advanced Professional Development (APD) courses cover most contemporary issues and developments in education. The modular model allows credits that can be accumulated and credited towards a Postgraduate Diploma (6 APD modules); Postgraduate Certificate (3 APD modules) or a full Masters degree (MA /MEd) when 6 modules and a dissertation is successfully completed.
