“Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey and Sussex (HEE KSS) is able to pay the fees for 6 students within the region to undertake the Postgraduate Diploma in Learning Disabilities Nursing at London South Bank University. We know that the need for newly qualified LD nurses both nationally and locally is increasing as the Intellectual Disabilities workforce is facing a period of intense changes, due in part to the Transforming Care Programme becoming embedded but also because of other factors including retirement age of the current workforce.
This PG Diploma is designed to challenge learners as it trains and educates future specialists, experts and leaders. Work placements for these students will be undertaken within the KSS region. More information can be found here:
The deadline for applications through UCAS is 30th June. The course code which the applicants need to select is B764 which is for PG Dip Learning Disability Nursing and our institute code is L75. The link to the online applications site is:
