Professional Skills Courses


Online Solutions specialise in providing training to those who work in the areas of behaviour change, health care, addictions, criminality, restorative practice and social inclusion. We offer a range of professional development eLearning courses authored by experts and designed to help you acquire and update essential key skills for your work related roles. We are constantly adding to our range of professional skills courses to keep you up to date with new and emerging evidence based training. 

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is quite simply a means of supporting people in the workplace to understand more about the environment in which they work, the job they do and how to do it better. It is an ongoing process throughout our working lives.

CPD can be part of an individual’s personal ambition to be a better practitioner, enhance his/her career prospects or to simply feel more confident about their work and make it more personally fulfilling. It can be a step on the ladder to higher qualifications or enhanced job prospects or be required by professional bodies to maintain professional status. It can be part of meeting targets set by workforce performance management schemes or an opportunity for individuals to change their career paths.

At Online Solutions the range of professional development courses that we offer to achieve these ambitions is diverse, flexible and varied. They can be as simple as developing practical skills through highly focused short courses or they may be designed to increase theoretical knowledge and in-depth understanding.
