We run our Continuing Professional Development modules throughout the year.

The start dates, teaching dates and assignment deadlines listed below are subject to change, and due to the Covid-19 pandemic face-to-face teaching may need to be moved online or postponed at short notice. A module running is dependent on numbers, but we will keep a "waiting list" and contact you if a new date becomes available in the future.

The closing date for applications for modules is two weeks prior to the module start date.

If you are interested in taking a module, please contact the School directly at msk@essex.ac.uk.
