Be tutored online by Neil Thompson!

The Avenue Professional Development Programme has been developed to allow busy practitioners and managers across the people professions to maximise their learning. There are two pathways within the Programme, Silver and Gold. The Silver pathway allows members access to a secure website where they can join in professional discussions under the tutorship of Dr Neil Thompson; have access to a constantly growing library of multimedia learning resources; develop an e-portfolio to record and demonstrate their learning and make use of an online reflective journal. It is not a course in the conventional sense, but, rather, an online learning community to support and facilitate continuous professional development and lifelong learning. Read an interview with Neil about the Programme by clicking here or watch a short video outlining the Programme by clicking here.

The Gold pathway includes all the benefits of the Silver pathway but with the addition of one-to-one e-mentoring with Neil, using email and electronic conferencing facilities.


The standard fee for the Silver pathway is £99 + VAT per year which can be paid annually or monthly at £10 inc. VAT per month. The subscription fee can be tax deductible as it is a legitimate professional expense. This means that the net price is less then £2 per week. If you are intending to apply to your employer for funding support you may find our draft application helpful. Click here for details.

There is also a Corporate Membership rate for organisations making a block booking, which can work out at as little as £35 per person per year. Click here for further details.

The standard fee for the Gold pathway is £999 + VAT per year which can be paid via a direct debit at £100 per month over the 12-month period.
