We offer Face-to-face, On-line, and distance Supported Open Learning approaches.
The Face to Face approach is well liked by organisations who want an in-house delivery, and our series of Open Programmes is available for individuals who wish to take this approach – even though numbers are often quite small for our workshops.
The On-line approach makes use of technology to enable us to offer webcasts and webinars on a regular timed basis, which allows you to undertake your study in small bites at work or home spread over a number of weeks.
For individuals or teams that are geographically more dispersed, or those who prefer to work at a distance, the Supported Open Learning approach is proving very popular, using published workbooks, website additional reading, and email/web conference support from an adviser/assessor.
Although the quality of our delivery is high, we have deliberately kept our fees at a responsible level, as we want to encourage and support those who wish to gain a qualification.
If you are an assessor, or wish to become an assessor, it would be well worth your time to make contact with us to explore in more detail what we can offer.
