The Faculty of Health and Social Care has over 400 teaching/research staff and a student body of over 7000. We have campuses in Southwark, South London and Havering in East London. We work with a variety of healthcare professionals including Bands 1-4 workers, Nurses, Midwives, Social Workers and Allied Health professionals. The CPPD Portfolio includes a range of programmes, modules, study days and bespoke projects all meeting the needs of our service colleagues. Our programmes are designed and implemented in collaboration with service colleagues supporting the development of a workforce that is not only fit for the here and now but will be able to lead and innovate into the future. We have exciting and innovative new programmes such as the Commissioning Place which has been developed in response to the due changes in the commissioning process, more information on this programme is available on the Institute for Leadership and Service Improvement page.
Most of these programmes are clinically focused and are becoming increasingly work based. Programmes, modules, study days and bespoke projects are designed to be flexible and offer a variety of delivery modes including E-learning, all underpinned by a robust research and practice based culture.
The Faculty has three research focused Institutes and supports over 40 research students supported by professors and readers. The Faculty has an ever increasing Postgraduate and applied research portfolio.
In 2011, we introduced a new online application system and CPPD Portal, enabling healthcare professionals to search and apply online at the click of a mouse, saving both time and eliminating paperwork. In 2012 we have introduced new top-up degrees for registered nurses in line with the drive for a graduate workforce.
The mission of the Faculty is to be London's first choice provider of education for the health and social care workforce. We hope you will find that our CPPD portfolio enables you to achieve your goal of excellence in service delivery.
