We have secured funding to support staff undertaking some Short Courses – Level 2 Certificates. These are fully funded and open to all staff.

Eligibility Criteria: • Employee led (these aren’t a mandate for staff and can’t be prescribed as compulsory for development) • Staff must be over the age of 17 • EU national for more than 3 years • Not in full time education 

Full course list

Staff can complete as many of the courses as they wish for personal development but only one at a time. All methods of learning in the UK requires anyone who wants to partake in learning to complete an initial assessment in Maths and English.  This isn’t a test and will not prevent you from enrolling on to the course. This is functional Maths and English, not GCSE meaning that the questions are based around functional tasks you would complete every day, such as; times and measurements.

To run an enrolment we need a minimum of 10 staff to enrol (this doesn’t have to be in the same course).The enrolment is face to face and lasts 2 hours which includes an Induction on to the course. Following this, the course is completed in staff member's own time and usually takes 6-10 weeks to complete. Support is available via tutors who are available by email, phone or text. Completion can either be carried out via a Visual Learning Environment (online) or via a written work book which is provided. All learning materials are provided during the Induction.


Staff must book to attend an enrolment, they can't just turn up on the day.  Please let Lauren Adkin, Wider-Workforce Coordinator, know if you wish to attend. E:
