Why the Digital Academy?

Reflecting the key elements
of our unique teaching model

The Tavistock and Portman changes lives. For 100 years, we have been at the forefront of exploring mental health and wellbeing. Many therapies and practices used around the world to treat mental health problems were devised at the Tavistock and Portman and, to this day, we continue to share our clinical expertise to help everyone in society.

Our teaching is unique. There are very few educational institutions that deliver courses in an NHS clinic, by serving NHS clinicians – in fact, we’re the only NHS Trust to be registered as a Higher Education Provider by The Office for Students. The advice and education our students receive reflects the very latest clinical practice, and mirrors what’s happening in treatment rooms.

And now, this education can be delivered to everyone. Our online courses have been carefully developed by our clinical and technical experts to allow you to experience education from the Tavistock and Portman wherever, whenever – building the understanding, skills and confidence that you need to get to the next phase of your professional journey.

Moreover, a number of our Digital Academy courses have been independently assessed and approved for Continuing Professional Development purposes by The CPD Certification Service – so you can feel confident that the learning activity meets global CPD standards and benchmarks, and that the learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality.

So, whether you’re looking for a short introduction to something new, or to delve deeper into a subject you love, to work at your own pace, or with a cohort of your peers, our online courses and masterclasses are here for you, ready to transform the way you learn, and help you to make a difference.
