Short courses

We offer a range of short CPD training courses, designed to help participants develop their professional skills and knowledge in a stimulating and dynamic environment, whilst sharing experience and ideas with others working in the field.

Our short course CPD programme allows you to learn flexibly and develop skills relevant to your profession. These are mostly shorter, intensive, non-credit bearing training courses. While some courses are designed for those in particular professional fields, others cover more general skills that will be of value to a wide range of people.

Our Marketing and Online Communications, Communication, and Management courses are designed to complement each other so we offer 10% discount if you book more than one course at once. Topics include media relations, writing for the web and Google Analytics training.
