Who we are

The WISDOM Centre is an online educational enterprise that has been delivering education and training since 1997. We provide high quality online courses, tailored to the needs of social researchers.

WISDOM is directed by Professor Nick Fox, professor of sociology at University of Huddersfield and honorary professor at the University of Sheffield. Until 2009, Nick Fox was director of teaching and learning in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR).

What we do

Since around 2001, we have worked with the NHS to provide online training direct to individuals for a fraction of the cost of comparable face-to-face courses. More than 1500 NHS staff have completed the courses, while we have also had students from many countries around the world, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the UAE.

We offer three courses currently. These are the Clinical Governance and Risk Management course, and two courses in Research Methods: for social researchers and for health professionals, respectively. Please follow these links to find out more about each course.
