The Education & Professional Training Hub provides a wide range of courses across five thematic areas.

From short courses completed as Continued Professional Development (CPD) to Postgraduate taught modules, designed to provide maximum benefit to relevant professions with participants undertaking work-based assignments as part of their assessment; using their knowledge gained to address business based challenges.

Completing Postgraduate taught modules also allow opportunities for participants to build these towards our flexible Postgraduate Qualifications from PG Cert to Professional Doctorate over time.

 For Employers

All Education & Professional Training Hub (EPTH) courses are designed with Agrifood industry and Healthcare Professional input to ensure we include topical issues and bridge knowledge gaps where industry feels there is a need to improve.
