Target Staff Group
The Edward Jenner programme is open to all. It is totally online and can be studied at the pace of the individual or in a guided way for a group - in the same way that the previous Edward Jenner programme has been used with organisations as part of induction and preceptorship.
Course Prerequisites
Objectives are covered at the start of each module
Delivery Method
Refresher Period
We suggest spending no more than 30 days on Launch and Foundations. We do however give a total of 150 days to complete both - so even those starting at the end of the intake period have more than enough time to complete the programme.
