The contribution of online and distance learning to your organisation

Online and distance learning is an efficient and effective means of professional development. Online and distance learning courses enable work and study to be combined, with immediate benefits to both:

  • The knowledge and skills acquired through study can be immediately applied in the workplace.
  • Most courses do not require time away from work.

This approach to study enables greater benefits and value to be quickly realised - vital in a climate where value for money can be a key consideration.
