Continuing Professional Development Opportunites

The University of Gloucestershire are offering a unique opportunity to playworkers and play professionals who wish to update and extend their knowledge of current thinking about play and playwork. 

From September 2015 the University of Gloucestershire are offering a series of study days that introduce the ideas, theories and concepts that form the foundations of study of children's play and playwork in their higher education programmes. Each study day acts as an opportunity for continuing professional development in its own right. 

Cost £60 per day. Alternatively, apply to join our postgraduate programme. Fees from £632.
