Focus 20 Programmes – For Vets

Veterinary Postgraduate Learning

What is Focus 20?

Accredited, relevant and accessible veterinary CPD.

Focus 20 Programmes are a selection of shorter, accredited, relevant and accessible modular veterinary CPD courses, designed to help you in everyday clinical practice and support the whole veterinary team.

Our specialist course mix will help you develop your skills in your chosen subject, and tackle different cases with greater confidence, as well as adapt your learning around your busy schedules.

Focus 20 allows you to build a tailored CPD programme to suit your needs, with flexibility and range to allow you to succeed.

Why choose a Focus 20 Programme

We have built Focus 20 to allow modular CPD training for Veterinarians in a customisable way, plus other benefits which include:

ISVPS Foundation Certificate (FCert): Suitable if you have gained an ISVPS General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert), Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) or ISVPS Nurse Certificate (NCert) as it provides a more detailed insight into subjects that may have been studied as part of a modular programme previously. It is also relevant to those vets and nurses looking for a stand-alone update in a chosen area of interest.

40 hours of CPD: Online uses blended media, a mixture of different learning styles from interactive online lessons and videos, webinars and “knowledge” checks. Face-to-face programmes are held in our leading training facilities or blended, which is a combination of online and face-to-face.

CPD developed by leading experts: We have selected the very best experts to help develop the content and structure of the Focus 20 programmes.

RCVS knowledge access: The RCVS Knowledge library includes access to a wealth of electronic resources, including the latest journals and clinical research.

Improve Veterinary Practice Membership: One year’s access to the Improve Veterinary Practice Membership – an online knowledge and information hub for veterinary professionals across all specialities.
