Initially part of the Post-Graduate Medical Education Department at the University of Leeds, we became independent in 1998.

From the start, Post-Graduate Professional Education was keen to promote cutting edge approaches of NLP, searching for ways that would make NLP even more effective.

We therefore set as our aim to map out new territories and to model approaches that did not exist in NLP in order to bring their excellence into the NLP model.

We are determined to continue pushing the envelope and expanding further its boundaries by linking it to, among others, developmental psychology and structural thinking.

Previous participants to our NLP practitioner training have informed us that their level of awareness and understanding is way higher than that of other people, even those who had completed Master Practitioner elsewhere.

We are proud to have involved L. Michael Hall from the beginning of this initiative and have had the pleasure of witnessing the emergence of the new discipline of Neuro-Semantics from day 1 or even before.
