How does flexible study work?
Innovative learning materials - including online materials, DVDs and podcasts so that your staff can study in a flexible way - at home, at work or on the move.
Supported learning - Multimedia materials are provided alongside a course calendar with deadlines to complete readings, assignments and/or exams. All students are assigned to a tutor group for support. Many courses offer some face to face tutorials and on line forums to enhance collaboration and support for assignments and exams.
Skills development and employee motivation - courses not only develop specific employee skills but also earn “credits” which can count towards a wider qualification – balancing the skills needs of the organisation with the long term aspirations of the employee.Find out more about our innovative approach and how our courses are delivered.
