Welcome to Health and Social Care Higher Education at Keyll Darree.

The team at Keyll Darree provide high quality education and resources for all health and social care staff on the Isle of Man. We are committed to support the Isle of Man Government priorities across all areas 'contributing to a sustainable educated, well trained and motivated workforce'.

The lecturers are all Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registered nurses and educators in either adult or mental health fields. Across the team they have a range of clinical experience in senior positions within primary and secondary care services across the IoM and UK, and experience of teaching in a range of UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), as well as of research and publishing.

The programmes delivered are all validated and endorsed by external UK organisations (HEI and NMC) and are regularly assessed against relevant standards.
