Uniformity, Standardisation and Quality Assurance of our Provision

Each of our certified training programmes is designed, developed and delivered utilising an in-depth ‘own research’ business development knowledge base and the National Accreditation Board (NAB credit framework as frame of reference – based on developing Units of learning (modules/standalone courses) which have a credit value and level of difficulty.

Programmes are designed and offered at non-tertiary difficulty (equating to Higher National Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma respectively) and three types of qualification are offered at each of those levels:

  • Professional/Postgraduate Certificate (requiring 8 credit points; equivalent to 40 hours of learning [Note: this is student learning time; not teaching contact time)
  • Specialist Certificate (requiring 16 credit points; equivalent to 80 hours learning)
  • Certified Certificate (requiring 40 credit points; equivalent to 160 hours learning)

The ‘difficulty’ of the acquired qualification is described by ‘Level Descriptors’ – which indicate the course participant learning outcomes (thus allowing learners, employers and awarding organisations to understand the range of knowledge, skills and abilities required to complete a particular level; and ensure that the development of our courses results in learner knowledge and skills regarding completion of a particular level meets standards comparable with National Accreditation Board (NAB)/National Board for Professional and Technical Examination (NABPTEX) standards.

The Level Descriptors indicate learner achievement at the particular level; they do not indicate learner performance within the level – this we capture with a combination of formative and summative assessments throughout and at the end of the programme.

Modes of Programme Delivery

  • We deliver out short courses in a classroom setting, or if a client so requests within his or her business premises(on-site) – and post-course ‘follow-up’ telephone, email or online support is offered.
  • Longer Certificate and Diploma programmes are delivered utilising a ‘blended’ learning approach – which, for us, is dependent upon the specific course and can include a combination of core classroom provision, online study exercises and use of the course participants own business and business context as learning vehicles (through the undertaking of set learning activities and mini-projects).
  • Delivery options used are developed to reflect the requisite nature of each programme or course – which include the development of courses that are appropriate for study through distance learning/online provision.
  • ‘Delivery timing’ is also tailored to the needs of particular learners: for example, a 40-hour credit unit may be delivered within convenient weekdays, evenings or across a number of weekends. Short one or two-day small business management training courses can also be provided.
