If you want to top up your Diploma or Advanced Diploma to a full degree, this is the course for you. The Professional Practice course is designed for any practitioner, and all of our units are essentially work-based and will enable you to explore issues which are relevant to your professional speciality.

Our framework is ideal for busy health and social care professionals as it will allow you to study manageable ‘bite-sized’ units, at your convenience. You can gain new knowledge, refresh skills, and ultimately enhance the client/patient care you are able to offer.
