Continuing Workforce Development (CWD)

Northumbria University’s Continuing Workforce Development Framework for Health Professionals.

Changes to funding for CWD modules

Health Education England in the North East (HEENE) has revised its commissioned portfolio of education. We will shortly be announcing our new schedule of delivery for the academic year 17/18. All programmes and modules that are not commissioned in the new academic portfolio are still available for applicants to self-fund or gain funding from their employer or other sources.

Further information will be available soon with a new schedule of delivery.

Northumbria University has an excellent reputation of providing innovative, flexible and wide-reaching professional learning and development opportunities to those working in the caring professions.

Designed by a multi-professional team including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Midwives, Social Care Staff and Medical Practitioners, our range of Continuing Workforce Development (CWD) is tailored towards individuals who are driving and enabling practice development in NHS North East.

We have excellent relationships with partner services in health, social care and social work and our range of provision supports practitioners and managers to engage in professional learning and then examine how this can be integrated in the practice arena.

Most people studying CWD at Northumbria have their learning funded and to ensure they receive the most appropriate training and development, students can customize their CWD learning to suit their specific requirements and future career aspirations.
