Birmingham City Business School offers a wide range of bespoke and tailored training and development solutions for your organisation.
By offering a flexible approach we are able to completely customise the content and delivery of our courses to meet your organisations requirements. Teaching can be on site at the university, at your company premises or a location of your choice across the UK. We can develop customised award-bearing programmes to suit the needs and context of your organisation.
Work-based courses blend academic study with hands-on employment in the workplace and can be studied by those already in employment as a means to further personal development and to aid organisations to retain good employees, or by those looking for a course with a difference. Our degree course, BA (Hons) Leadership and Management Practice, concentrates taught learning into set study blocks throughout the three-year course.
We can accommodate direct entry into Year 2 or the final year if prior experience and qualifications have been obtained (ie completion of Level 4 or 5 qualifications, ILM Level 5 in management. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis).
Accreditation of in-company training and development
If your organisation has already developed its own in house training and development programmes Birmingham City Business School can work with you to gain accreditation for these programmes. This involves matching your in house training to national qualification standards and where necessary further developing your training to build towards formal national qualifications.
This approach maximises the return on investment your business receives from training and development enabling your employees to gain a formally recognised qualification. It can also help your business attract and retain talented staff. Staff at Birmingham City Business School are also experienced in mapping the learning outcomes of modules against courses at the same level and against experience on behalf of our clients.
For example, we have mapped our work-based degree programmes to Apprenticeship Frameworks which enable individuals to gain qualifications up to Honours and Master’s Level.
