Our focus is on your personal and professional development

Studying our work-based learning courses, means you no longer need to take time out of work to engage with Continuous Professional Development through academic study.

Our generic work-based learning programmes allow you to gain academic credits for practice development work being undertaken in your work environment. Our focus is your personal and professional development.

CPD Module:


Credit Transfer 

We are now able to offer credit transfer from other Higher Education Institutes if the previously studied modules are relevant to the planned programme of study. You can apply to the school to transfer in up to 40 credits at level 4, 5 and 6 and 60 credits at level 7 from other Higher Education Institutes towards your degree.


Accreditation for prior learning 

Accreditation for prior (certificated) learning is where credit is awarded for learning which has already been assessed and certificated as part of a completed or partly completed course undertaken in Higher Education (e.g. a previous degree). Sometimes there may be overlap between the original and the new programme of study.

Accreditation of prior (experiential) learning is where ‘learning achieved outside education or training systems is assessed and, as appropriate, recognised for academic purposes’ (Quality Assurance Agency 2004).
