Course Structure

Study from home with our e-Learning platform

All courses within the LDi are intended to complement and fit alongside a normal working schedule. With our blended learning approach, theoretical teaching through lectures and webinars is provided on our specifically designed institute e-platform. This two way interface also allows for ongoing case discussion and mentoring throughout the course, and encourages the students to build experience knowing that expert support and advice is easily accessible.

Face to Face London Practical Teaching Blocks

To supplement the e-learning, there are two seven day residential blocks in London of face to face lectures and hands practical on teaching. These weeks are designed to build on the knowledge already provided over the distance learning, and to ensure students are able to build their clinical skills and confidence.  The timetable design allows for the most efficient use of time away from work for the students during this period of concentrated teaching.

Postgraduate Diploma Certification

In an increasingly competitive field, it is not only desirable for clinicians to be able to build their experience and knowledge base in order to provide the highest quality of care for their patients, but also to justify this with appropriate certification. As such, the courses within the LDi are structured to match the requirements of the awarding body Eduqual (Level 7), and we are pleased to confirm that the successful completion will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.
