About St Christopher’s education
Why St Christopher's education?
Our vision is of a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to care and support, whenever and wherever they need it. We believe that education is the key to achieving this ambition.
Generally recognised as where the modern hospice movement began 50 years ago, education has always been one of the three cornerstones of St Christopher’s core business.
In 2014 we became the first UK hospice to become an approved City & Guilds centre delivering not only nationally accredited vocational qualifications but our own City & Guilds certificated qualifications.
Our Learning Hub
Looking to the future, we plan to extend our reach further through our new Learning Hub. These new facilities will provide a learning environment which will encourage discussion and exploration of the issues of ageing, living with long-term conditions and dying in the 21st century.
New technologies will support us to continue to provide face to face education at a distance, widening access to those who find it difficult to travel to us.
