Work based learning courses produce a skilled, accomplished and qualified workforce. They are work-related competency based qualifications studied part-time at the place of work. They include NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications) and some apprenticeships.

This type of course is especially suited to existing employees within an organisation who have relevant industry experience and would like their skills to be accredited. It is also a great way to develop and achieve a higher level of attainment, or to gain a qualification as a stepping stone to an apprenticeship.

Learners will receive regular visits from an assigned college assessor, who will ensure timely achievement of the course units or modules required by setting targets to ensure ongoing progress with the qualification.

For employers, the introduction of work based training means that the business is commited to achieving competitive advantage through continual performance improvement with a skilled, accomplished and qualified workforce.
