Where and how will my staff study?

Your employees will be able to fit their learning around work and home life, with online courses designed to make studying simple. They’ll complete modules with the support of interactive course content material. A personal tutor will be available by phone, email and online messaging tools, to offer them advice and ensure they complete their courses with confidence.

What are the business benefits?

A commitment to developing your staff will help to maintain the high standards of education and training expected across your sector. Employees working through these modules will gain the knowledge, skills and experience to provide a high level of support to learners and to accurately assess the quality of their learning. This should reduce the risk of non-compliance with current assessment and quality assurance practices, and improve the quality of service you offer to your learners.

Giving your staff opportunities to learn has also been proven to boost morale, attract the best new talent and improve staff retention rates.
