What opportunities will this course give me?

All successful businesses and their employees have one vital thing in common: they consistently work to improve and develop their performance. Without a constant dedication to improve processes, outputs and structure, workplaces will never truly thrive.

Which is why we are thrilled to deliver our fully funded Level 2 certificate in Understanding Business Improvement Techniques. Youll learn the changes and adjustments that can make a business more efficient, as well as how to save time and costs. Students will become confident and clear in all aspects of workplace organisation, including how to build an effective team and manage working relationships.

You will also gain an in-depth understanding of why it is important to refine and perfect processes and procedures, and how visual management systems and flow process analysis can support you in doing so.

Previous students have moved onto fulfilling roles as an Improvement Coach, IQA and Improvement Team Leaders. The options are huge; and exciting. Whatever your choice, our passionate team will help you get there.

Why is this course for me?

Successful completion of the programme will result in a VRQ: a nationally recognised and professional qualification, designed to further your professional development.

The course is available fully funded for anyone over 19 and unemployed or those in employment and 23 +. The College also offers full funding for any students aged 19-23 who hold a level 2 award or higher; our primary aim is to make the programme as accessible as possible.

The multi-layered course is delivered through distance learning, with assessment carried out through an electronic portfolio. You will enjoy a mix of both theoretical and practical tasks, challenging your knowledge and understanding of these new tools and techniques.

Students benefit from working on their own timeframe and circumstances at a pace that works for them. You will never need to attend the College meaning the programme is truly open to all.

Plus, the certificate will be closely aligned to your experience and work environment, allowing you to put your skills and understanding into practice from the word go.

How will my learning be enhanced?

Completion of this Level 2 course will culminate in the award of a nationally recognised qualification; one that will enhance all CVs and job applications.

In particular, the course will offer stimulating opportunities to widen your understanding of business improvement techniques, such as:

●Safe and effective team working
●Principles and techniques that support workplace organisation
●Continuous improvement techniques (Kaizen) and their application in the workplace
●Visual management systems
●Problem solving techniques (such as 5 Whys and Ishikawa diagrams)
●Flow process analysis

Its a detailed, engaging course with a major potential for onwards success. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
