Training courses and CPD

Various academic departments within our University offer CPD programmes for professionals working in related fields.

Business and Local Government Data Research Centre

Our data analytics workshops bring together the latest academic thought applied to real business or public sector issues. Using the latest powerful programming languages and software including Stata, Python, R and Hadoop, we share new big data skills and knowledge that can enhance your organisation to make stronger, evidence-based business decisions.

Whether you are looking to manage your supply chain more effectively, demonstrate value for money or understand your customers, our data knowledge and techniques can help. Training is offered at our Southend Campus or on-site in your organisation.

Health and human sciences

We deliver CPD programmes for qualified health and social care professionals. Our staff are both academically and clinically qualified and many are practising clinicians. We provide you with training that is not just clinically relevant but based on current research and our years of experience. We offer day workshops, specialist bespoke courses, credit-bearing modules and degree pathways. Training is offered at our Colchester and Southend Campuses or on-site at your premises.

Psychoanalytic studies

We offer a number of CPD courses for education, health and social care professionals at both our Colchester and Southend Campuses. Delivered by highly acclaimed academics and clinicians, a range of one-day workshops, summer schools and credit-bearing modules are available.


We work with Suffolk and North Essex Law Society to deliver an annual programme of CPD courses which are extremely popular with legal firms across the region. Our events feature high-calibre speakers and take place at our Colchester Campus.
