The UWS Centre for Continuing Professional Development manages professional courses for individuals at all stages of their working lives, whether they join our scheduled courses or programmes delivered on a tailormade basis. We offer courses in fields as diverse as dementia care and digital skills, design manufacture and second language acquisition.
UWS is committed to offering training that directly supports areas of growth and challenge in Scotland and fields of particular focus include:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Net zero carbon economy;
- Health & social care;
- Early years;
- Technical STEM-D
We offer a combination of free-to-access short courses, self-paced bite-sized online learning, online live learning and longer programmes requiring a greater level of commitment. We can offer full programme modules condensed into one week, or chunks of longer modules that can build up into longer qualifications.
UWS offers short course accreditation and awards through multiple professional awarding bodies including ACCA, CIMA, CMI and DMI.
For those considering a longer study path, our Graduate Apprenticeship pathways offer individuals an opportunity to study in vocational subjects alongside full time employments in related fields. Find out more about our Graduate Apprenticeships.
