Speech and Language Sciences at Newcastle University offers a range of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities in Speech and Language Sciences for Speech and Language Therapists and associated professionals.

These modules are relevant to Speech & Language Therapists (SLTs), Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), Specialist Teachers, Logopedie; Orthophonistes; Logopèdes; Logopädie and Speech and Language Pathologists

The CPD opportunities in Speech and Language Sciences at Newcastle University include a number of stand alone Masters level modules.

These modules have been developed through a close partnership with regional SLT managers and clinical leads. The focus is on quality improvement in an individual practitioner’s workplace through the identification of clinical or strategic issues, exploration of the evidence base to address that issue and completion of work-based projects. In this way managers or individual practitioners can address current issues, translating research and best evidence into practice.

The modules are designed to be accessible to professionals working full time in a pressured and ever changing environment. Modules are typically taught over two or three full days at Newcastle University. It is expected that each module will require approximately ten study days in total. Self study is supported by email; a virtual learning environment; discussion boards and Facebook groups.
