About Maudsley Learning

Our mission is to produce the highest quality mental health and wellbeing education and training products.

We design and deliver courses to meet the continuing professional development needs of individual professionals in the healthcare workforce, but also to many others including colleagues in social services, policing, schools and in the private sector.

We also design and deliver programs to organisations and companies to meet their wider multi-professional needs focusing on enhancing safety or quality. We have an excellent record of success delivering commissioned training nationally and are proud to have nurtured Maudsley Simulation into BMJ national Education Team of the Year 2018!

Building positive relationships with our customers is supremely important to us, whether individuals booking one course or organisations commissioning a wider program of work.

We can deliver the best quality learning experiences in both traditional and innovative educational modalities thanks to our expertise and agility. Our access to a range of subject matter expertise is second to none via the global centres of excellence in South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) and our university partners, the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London.

Furthermore, our agility allows us to respond to the needs of our customers, producing bespoke courses tailored to their unique requirements.

We look forward to working with you.
