Building on the Women in Leadership course for SMEs that has been delivered since 2019, this course is specifically for employees of businesses operating in the STEM sectors, or for employees working in a STEM focused role.

Developed by experts working in NTU’s Medical Technologies Innovation Facility (MTIF) and delivered by Nottingham Business School (NBS), this course is available for women currently working in or aspiring to work in leadership and management roles.

The course is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and is delivered over three days. It is flexible enough to fit around other personal and professional commitments including childcare and work and is also suitable for those without any prior experience of higher education.

Medtech Regulations and Compliance

Open for expressions of interest now, NTU has developed a new course focusing on the changing regulatory environment around medical devices and in vitro diagnostics. The course is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and is available to employees of all small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are based within the Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire area.

This course focuses on the key requirements of businesses to remain compliant and stay ahead of future changes following recent regulatory changes and upheaval with new European Union and Great Britain regulations.

Our STEM skills courses are delivered through the ESF-funded ‘Branch out in STEM’ project. To find out more details about the courses available and dates, visit the project page or contact us at
