Participant Testimonial:

 “This programme was one of the best things that has happened in my life. It definitely exceeded my aims and expectation. It’s a perfect option for people like me who want to study and work at the same time, for their professional development and their careers. “My studies have given me so much confidence and up-to-date knowledge and experience. The structure of the EPTH modules, using distance learning and contact time, worked well for me (and for my employer) and the independent learning that was a key part of the assignment work in each module required me to engage with academic work in a way that I had neglected for many years. “I brought all the knowledge gained from the modules back to the business and it is now used as part of day-to-day operations.”
