Bespoke Courses

The following modules from the MSc Social Work Advanced Professional Practice programme are also validated as stand-alone modules. If you would like to discuss commissioning a tailored cohort for one of these, please contact us at cpd@lincoln.ac.uk and ask to speak to the Centre Manager.

The Professional Development Centre is based at the University of Lincoln’s main campus in central Lincoln; however we are happy to deliver at a location convenient to you. In the past we have provided cohorts in Scunthorpe, York and Northallerton and Peterborough.
