Continuing Professional Development

Developing your career

During the current Covid-19 situation we are keeping our CPD modules and training provision under constant review, prioritising courses for which there is highest demand and need amongst local professionals and employers. Due to possible variability we have not yet published a module calendar for the next academic year but hope to do so in early Autumn.  

We are accepting new students onto our programmes and, where there is availability, onto our modules. 

If there is a module you would like to undertake, or programme you are interested in starting, please email us (cpd@essex.ac.uk) and we will provide you with further details.

We will keep our modules (listed below) online,  as well as our guide to HEE workforce development priorities.

If you find a module that you would like to undertake in the future please email us (cpd@essex.ac.uk) with the module code and title, and we will add you to our waiting list. We can then contact you in the future as courses are restarted.

Our CPD Modules

Specialist clinical practice

Musculoskeletal assessment and ultrasound imaging


Returning to full-time education doesn't suit everyone, so we've created flexible CPD learning pathways that allow you to stack modules to build your own qualification.

We have both undergraduate and postgraduate pathways available, allowing you to pick modules that match your professional needs. You'll find that how our modules are delivered varies (e.g. on campus, online, etc), and when they are delivered, so you can plan your studying around your existing commitments.

You can take the following pathways:

These modular pathways are not currently eligible for funding from Student Finance. Take a look at other funding options that may be available to you.
