CHE work in partnership with the learners, supporting and enabling them to develop the knowledge and confidence they require in order to meet the changing, and often complex, needs of their clients.

CHE aims to be responsive to what practitioners want so we run a range of long & short courses from 2 hour evening seminars to full degree programme, with postgraduate modules planned for the future. We cover a wide range of topics that have particular relevance to practitioners. We work in partnership with the University of Bolton to provide education in supportive, palliative and end of life care. This is validated by the University and carries academic credits and awards. We always try to use interesting and varied teaching methods in a safe, supported learning environment.
