Places available for May and September The demand for qualified healthcare professionals has never been greater. The NHS is changing at an unprecedented rate – and with over thirty years experience we anticipate and respond to the developments in the health, social care and a range of related sectors.

Our courses and programmes respond directly to the requirements of the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) which is at the heart of the career and pay progression strand of Agenda for Change.

Funding update: Nursing students to receive £5,000 payment a year

The Government has announced that from September 2020 new and continuing students studying undergraduate and postgraduate pre-registration nursing, midwifery and some allied health courses will receive a non-repayable and non-means tested (universal) grant of at least £5,000 a year, in addition to existing mainstream student support.

Eligible students may receive additional funding of up to £3,000 to help with childcare costs or to study specific courses. We will update our website once more details have been announced by the Government in early 2020.
