Continuing Professional Development

Our continuing professional development programme (CPD) has been helping businesses, managers and teams to successfully grow in London and the South of England since 2008.

We can help you to raise the quality and resilience of your workforce by investing in their development through our CPD courses.

Effective workforce development will help you to:

  • Retain your staff
  • Grow your own leaders and managers
  • Raise the quality of your services
  • Improve outcomes for the people you work with and support
  • Enhance your reputation

The Department of Childhood Studies has a team of professionally qualified and experienced staff who work with front line services and their managers.

We have national and international standing; we understand best practice from around the world and the team are both active researchers and registered professionals in their field of expertise. We work in a culture of continual learning and accountability where personal development and resilience are at the core.

My experience on the safeguarding children course has been brilliant. It has been informative, refreshing and a course I could really get involved in”

"We found the University of Chichester to be an excellent partner in the mentoring project that we commissioned with them. They were well organised, flexible and responsive to our needs. The delegates on the programme benefited from the extensive knowledge and experience of the Chichester mentors and we achieved some excellent outcomes that will make a real difference to the service we provide."
