Public sector expertise

Our track record developing programmes for public sector learning

Middlesex University plays a leading role in providing education, research and consultancy services to the public sector with a focus on the delivery of public services and degree apprenticeships.

We have extensive experience of delivering workforce development programmes and provide public sector higher education that is built on practice based learning. Our dedicated experts help public sector employers enhance their team's ability to work together in order to provide exceptional services to their clients. We also work with individuals to promote professional development and offer a range of services in evaluation, research and consultancy.


Middlesex University has been associated with the Metropolitan Police for decades, and has developed and provided work-based postgraduate programmes for senior officers. Middlesex University is currently working with its Police Engagement Group (PEG), to enhance existing programmes, as well as develop other applicable degrees and programmes. The University continues to liaise and work collaboratively with the College of Policing in order to implement the Policing Education Qualification Framework.


Middlesex University has been involved in teacher training since the 1950s and the Education Department has a long-established reputation for the provision of high-quality teaching and learning. We work in partnership with over 500 schools, colleges and settings in most London boroughs, Hertfordshire, Essex, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. Many of these partnerships are related to our Initial Teacher Training provision, including those that have chosen to work with us in training teachers on the School Direct scheme.

Social work

Our cutting-edge social work programmes, designed in collaboration with current students, employers and service users, prime students with expert theoretical knowledge and the essential professional skills to flourish in practice. We have excellent relationships with a range of local authorities and voluntary and independent sector organisations across London. This ensures our courses are embedded in public sector values and that we teach the most current policy and practice in social work. It also gives our students access to excellent quality placements and and their potential for employability is high right across the sector.


Middlesex University has a strong reputation in Nursing in working with our partner Trusts and other employing organisations in London. Our nursing programmes all have practice and theory requirements set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), and we work in partnership with colleagues in practice at a range of levels to ensure these are met. We have a strong reputation for student support, and for supporting innovative routes to nursing registration. We also have a strong reputation for leading practice-based learning within nursing, and lead upon a number of pan-London and national initiatives. We work with the NMC, employers and service users to deliver our nursing programmes which are well regarded by our stakeholders.
