Inside Short Courses:

How to gain Confidence & Increase your chances of employment 


What is a Short Course?

If you are looking into advancing your career or enhancing your studies. It is a level 2 qualification course that is delivered 100% online and can help you gain skills and qualifications that will open doors to further study that will boost your job prospects. All you need is an internet-connected device, and a willingness to learn and we will provide the rest.

To be awarded this qualification, learners are required to complete all mandatory units. Each unit is made up of a set of questions on a (?)web assessment page(?) and an electronic textbook that can be downloaded to view separately. With additional support and advice from your assessor. Every unit is submitted and marked separately.


A short course is a great place to better understand or expand upon existing knowledge. These are usually done to study the subject at a higher level or seek employment in a related role.

There are numerous reasons why you should consider a short course.
