Welcome to the Continuing Professional Development Blog
Join us here weekly for news on the latest exciting cpd programmes the university has to offer and insights into the views of cpd learners and deliverers from around the globe.
We shall be sharing with you the immense range of CPD programmes we have to offer across the full breadth of our 5 faculty areas of:
- Medicine and Health Science
- Social Sciences
Various locations for CPD programmes
University of Nottingham CPD takes place in some of the most idyllic of settings. Imagine yourself on the Tioman Island, Malaysia, 32km off the East and opposite coast to that of Kuala Lumpur where the university’s campus can be found.
Are you there yet? Yes? Good. Well, that’s the base for our Coral Reef Ecology Summer School developed by the School of Geography and local partner local Eco Field Trips. We shall feature a more comprehensive blog on this in July.
Just Give it a Wiggle and a Push! – Getting the most out of Small Animal Endoscopy. This is the title of a programme delivered by the Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Health. The School is the first brand new, purpose-built veterinary school in the UK for over 50 years and is set within our 1,000 acre Sutton Bonington campus. Needless to say, as a new School we have state-of-the-art purpose built facilities for both research and teaching, we are set to become a UK leader in its field.

We know how important it is to have programmes delivered in a number of formats to suit different styles of learning and so we develop programmes to suit a number of tastes and preferences:
- online learning
- blended learning
