About the level 7 University qualification

Accelerate are delighted to be working in partnership with Leeds Beckett School of Health to launch a brand new level 7 university qualification. The course will cover the critical examination of the evidence base for wound management, supporting learners to apply this to clinical practice as well as the theory and practical application of sharp debridement.

The course will have a blended learning format wih live and interactive virtual sessions, self-directed study and face to face workshops.

Effective wound management is an important aspect of health and social care provision. So we are delighted to form a partnership with Accelerate Academy to ensure we can meet the learning needs of Nurses and other Healthcare practitioners in our shared goal to improve service user care and experience.
