Course leader: Sharon Lambley
We are no longer recruiting students to post-qualifying (PQ) award programmes, although some courses currently running will continue till August 2013. Students who have part-completed a PQ award must contact their training manager to discuss completion by August 2013. If it is not possible, you will likely transfer to our new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) award framework currently in development which will be in place from September 2013. Credits from the old PQ framework will be accepted and count towards awards in the new CPD framework. Check these web pages frequently for latest news/updates.

Most of the CPD courses offered by the Department of Social Work and Social Care can be taken as a range of modules which can be tailored to your own professional development needs - be that your current role or qualifications towards your career development. Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) is a system by which you can build on prior learning to fast-track the obtaining of further qualifications. Formally assessed courses, part-qualifications, as well as full qualifications, are all recognised and can count towards future study. APL is an accepted part of the University's educational provision with former credits counting towards its own awards - provided the learning outcomes of your former qualifications/awards matches that of the Sussex course. To this end, a flexible and robust APL procedure has been developed by the Department of Social Work and Social Care at Sussex to enable students to use former credits towards future ones.
If partners or other organisations would like us to deliver courses to groups of staff, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
