Dementia care related (and other) courses, northern England

Bradford Dementia Group is now recruiting for a part-time PG Cert in Dementia Studies available by open and distance learning.

Special Features
  • Our courses are part-time, flexible and delivered by distance learning, addressing the needs of adult learners who are combining study with busy work and home life.
  • Our Experts by Experience panel (Individuals and families affected by dementia) are involved in teaching, assessment and programme management.
  • Learning materials are developed in house by members of the course team; all of whom are research active and in regular contact with individuals and organisations committed to improving the quality of life for people affected by dementia.
  • We recognise that our learners are adults with a wealth of practical experience and skills to bring to the field of dementia studies
  • Building on the work of the founder of Bradford Dementia Group, Professor Tom Kitwood, our courses continue to promote a holistic, person-centred and bio-psycho-social model of dementia.
