The Neurological Physiotherapy Level 2 Course is at Intermediate level aligned to the Competence Framework.

A physiotherapy practitioner at this level can independently manage clients with more complex presentations. It would suit physiotherapists:
- With some years of experience in this area of practice
- Who have undertaken relevant further learning or qualification in this area of practice

The Course uses a mix of teaching and learning approaches with a focus on active learning and learner-centred strategies. These include PowerPoint presentations, practicals and facilitated case-based group discussions. Within the Course, participants will apply and demonstrate their enhanced knowledge, and translate this into practical application. A range of case studies and practical sessions will allow the presenters to work within their experience.
