The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust

For over 100 years, The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has been at the forefront of exploring mental health and wellbeing – from pioneering the development of new clinical interventions, to establishing a reputation as an international centre of excellence for education. Today, we treat hundreds of patients every year, while offering a wide range of training opportunities – each integrating a rich variety of theoretical perspectives, the latest clinical insights and research, and space for reflection and experiential learning.

Our programmes of study support practitioners from a wide range of sectors, including mental health, healthcare, education, social care, consultancy and criminal justice. Many of our pathways are based on an escalator model – from introductory Trust Certificates and Postgraduate Diplomas through to more specialist Master’s degrees and Doctorate level programmes – supporting the development of expertise across multiple specialisms.

Our validated courses are awarded by the University of Essex and University of East London, while our clinical courses are accredited by a range of leading professional bodies. And, as the only NHS Trust registered with the Office for Students, we are uniquely placed to deliver training based on real-time, clinical insights and research – reflecting the complex and changing needs of the populations we serve, in both clinical and non-clinical roles.

So, whether you’re studying in London at the Tavistock Centre, across the UK and Europe with our like-minded educational partners, or remotely via an online or blended course, you can be sure that the education you receive will be highly relevant, stimulating and transformative.
