Paediatric Audiological Assessment (newborns)

CPD and short courses (short course)

Blended learning

12 weeks

Module code: P1192

Module level: 7

Module credits: 15 credits


This exciting course is aimed at those currently working in a suitable audiology department and currently registered with AHCS/RCCP or HCPC.

This module is based on the requirements for learning outlined in the Higher Training Scheme (British Academy of Audiology) and develops skills around audiological assessment of newborn babies requiring objective testing and peer review of cases, including those referred from the newborn hearing screen as well those exempt from the newborn screen (e.g., babies with a diagnosis of microtia / external ear atresia, bacterial meningitis / meningococcal septicaemia or confirmed congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) that do not present with likely complicating factors).

How is the course taught?

You'll complete weekly, self-paced online learning tasks alongside work-based learning and reflection, supplemented by a block residential on campus. You'll be encouraged to develop an understanding of your own professional capabilities and limitations, and consider the critical importance of continuing professional development for audiologists working in paediatrics.

Can I do this course without attending the face-to-face sessions?

No – it is not possible to complete any of the modules that have face-to-face teaching through correspondence or as a distance learning student. The on-site learning is a requirement of this module.

Who should attend?

Audiologists currently working in a suitable audiology department (i.e., with access to supervision for neonatal hearing assessment) and currently registered with AHCS/RCCP or HCPC.


Online learning will commence in September 2024. The residential week has provisional dates of 9-13 December 2024, and will take place from 9am-5pm at Compass House on ARU's Cambridge campus.
