Flexible, Online, Level 2 Accredited Qualifications

Summary

Every business needs knowledgeable, effective and skilled staff. West Suffolk College offer a range of fully funded* qualifications at Level 2 to help those looking to develop their workplace skills and enable employers to fill skills gaps in the workforce. All courses are 12 weeks in duration.

The range of qualifications will appeal to any workplace and covers a variety of subjects such as:
• Business and management

Entry Requirements

Candidates will be required to attend an induction session at the start of the course. Inductions can be arranged within the workplace for groups of 8 or more. Individuals can choose to attend at our local learning centres in Sudbury, Haverhill and Thetford or the main campus in Bury St Edmunds. Inductions are designed to give individuals the best possible start to their course and candidates will need to complete enrolment paperwork as well as an initial screening for maths and English. Candidates will need to complete their learning within 12 weeks of their start date.

College Attendance and Assessment

On successful completion of a face to face induction, candidates will be provided with learning and assessment materials that have been developed to support individuals to meet the qualification requirements. These include workbooks and a personalised login to access the online learning portal. All subsequent learning will be online and can be completed at a time that suits without the need to attend college. Dedicated tutors will provide written feedback on the assessments and ongoing remote support where required. Courses must be completed within 12 weeks.
