Why Study Here 

These face-to-face training sessions provide delegates with the opportunity to interact with people from different industry sectors and organisations, while sharing knowledge and good practice from their experiences. 

They provide employees with time for reflection and space away from the desk/office, often helping delegates realise that those everyday challenges are not unique to them or their organisation. 

Application Method

Additional Information 

If you are an organisation with 10 or more delegates choosing to book on a course, we will run that training for you on your site. 

This in-house Workplace Returners training option means that our experienced tutors are able to deliver a more tailored content based around your organisation's requirements and needs particular to your staff. 

The content can also be delivered as part of a broader programme, partnered with other training sessions to meet those gaps identified by team leaders and line managers. 

All students aged 19 years or over on 1 September in the first year of their course are expected to pay tuition, registration, exam fees and all other course related costs. Some assistance with these costs may be available depending on your circumstances and the latest government funding position.

There are normally no tuition, registration or examination fees to pay if you are aged 16-18 on 1 September in the first year of your course and are a British or European Union resident. This does not apply to HNCs/Ds, Foundation Degrees, Degrees or courses that do not attract government funding (identified as 'no fee remission available on this course').
