Welcome to our continuing professional development pages.

Children, families and adults who need professional support are at the heart of our continuing professional development courses; and we design the learning and teaching  around practice to help you  develop your knowledge, skills and capabilities as professionals.  We have a high profile research programme, including the Centre for Research on Children and Families, and we make use of a wide variety of research from inside and outside the School to inform and lead our teaching.

We recognise that you work with diverse people in a wide variety of roles and organisations; the modules and courses we offer aim to reflect something of this range.
