Continuing professional development and short courses

Within our faculty we offer a range of innovative and exciting continuing professional development (CPD) modules and workshops to benefit your professional development and help achieve your career goals. Our entire CPD portfolio is in line with current practice and delivered by a team of professionals.

All of our health and social care courses embrace the NHS values (Department of Health, 2013). Developed by patients, public and NHS staff, the NHS values (working together for patients, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives and everyone counts) underpin our teaching and aspiration to share knowledge and understanding.

Ongoing development needs are moving rapidly with the times for newly qualified and more established teachers, professional practitioners, and lecturers. There are increasing demands for tailored Masters degrees in education, and learning and teaching, PhD and professional doctorate studies.

Our Department of Education offers a wide range of courses for professionals in early years education and other professionals in work-based contexts. New, exciting courses include the MA Early Childhood Education and the MA Early Years Professional Practice.

Bespoke training

We can tailor many of our modules and workshops to meet specific needs, providing completely bespoke training solutions for organisations either on site or at a venue of your choice.

Catherine Lee

Mid Essex Hospital NHS Trust

At Mid Essex Hospital NHS Trust, we encourage our staff to listen to our patients, to challenge the status quo, and to lead compassionate care delivery. We know that can require courageous leadership decisions and so in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University we have designed bespoke sessions to support our staff to deliver leadership in action.

Facilitated sessions have led to our staff making changes to improve the patient experience, and for our patients this means their voice is being heard. Staff who have benefited from the courses have described their learning as inspirational, excellent and motivating. We are working with our educational partners at the university constantly to evaluate and respond to the national changes such as the recommendations set out in the Francis report. Leadership is key in delivering our aim of putting our patients first and foremost, and Anglia Ruskin University are helping us to achieve this.
