Distance Learning in Paediatric Neurodisability

In the UK, we have for over 13 years run a very successful Sheffield Diploma in Neurodisability for trainees working with disabled children and their families. Many of our leading neurodisability consultants are graduates of the course, which they joined as trainees since it covers all the essentials of the neurodisability training curriculum.
However, it is also a fantastic development opportunity for clinicians already established in the field. Those who have been through the course often tell us how important it has been to them in developing a lifelong network of similarly-minded colleagues.
Until now the course has been run through Sheffield Hallam University. However, over the last year Sheffield Hallam has had some organisational changes, and at the same time the needs of our course participants have evolved. So, this spring we made the decision to go our separate ways and run the course differently.
From September 2017, we will be running the Diploma as a partnership arrangement between BACD and Sheffield Children's Hospital. This opens up some really exciting opportunities by giving us a lot more flexibility than we had through the University. We will be able to develop our content to welcome a much wider range of clinical staff including allied health professionals and nurses, and will also be able to offer some standalone modules e.g ADHD, ASD and other communication disorders, Epilepsy etc. We will also be able to give more flexibility in the pace at which students can complete the various modules.
The Diploma is currently recruiting for a September 2017 start.
