There are two compulsory 15-credit modules in working interprofessionally and preparation for research, and a 30-credit research project. You can create your own modular programme to match your role and career requirements. You have the flexibility to choose four 15-credit modules. These may include a focus on child and adolescent mental health, mental health speciality modules, child protection, workbased learning, managing major incidents, or you may select from our range of level-3 modules.
