Staff training and development

As providers of degree level, work-based education, we develop and deliver courses that meet demanding business requirements. Many big brand chosen our work-based training programmes to develop their employees’ skills, knowledge and understanding and to improve business performance.

Offering a choice of university qualifications, from Higher Education Certificates through to degree and postgraduate awards, we apply robust academic principles that deliver genuine business solutions.

Our work-based learning approach gives organisations the opportunity to update and upgrade the skills of their workforce without staff spending time away. And, by completing projects based on actual workplace issues, employees continue to add value while they are training.

Developing in-house training

If your company has its own staff training programme, we can work with you to develop and enrich course content around your existing provision. This could lead to formal academic recognition of your programme, rewarding your staff with academic credits, which may then count towards a further university qualification.

We can also evaluate and quantify learning wherever it occurs, giving academic recognition for the value of your employees’ experience and know-how by accrediting their experiential learning. This makes the most of your investment in learning and development and their experience. Find out more on our Accreditation page.
