Employers

Nowadays, employers are increasingly paying more and more attention to online distance learning courses as a means to upskill their employees. This page will detail how employers will benefit by choosing UniCourse as one of their training providers.

Why Online Distance Learning?

  • There may be periods when, as an employer, you are comfortable with allowing your employee(s) to devote time during working hours to their studies. However, due to unpredictable workloads and busy periods, this may not always be feasible. Therefore, enrolling your employee(s) onto courses that can be studied wherever or whenever is highly convenient.
  • Employees may become stressed when they have to juggle challenging workloads and submitting assignments on time. This could lead to a loss of productivity and result in the employee underperforming on the course. That’s why studying a course that doesn’t impose assignment deadlines is beneficial. Your employee(s) can fully focus on their work in the knowledge that they can put maximum effort into their assignments when time eventually permits, either during less busy times at work or at home in their own time.

 

Why UniCourse?

  • Edexcel – the awarding body for the HNC/D Engineering and Business courses we deliver – gives every learner a five year registration period, and ILM – the awarding body for the Leadership & Management courses we deliver – gives every learner a three year registration period. This means the learner can speed up and slow down the course as it suits. If you want your employee to complete their course in a certain timeframe, we are happy to inform your employee of what they would be expected to regularly achieve – in the form of an individual learning plan – to provide guidance on how they can reach the target.
  • Your employees will benefit from well over 100 and counting pre-recorded videos to help them further understand the topics on the course. In addition to this, your employee(s) will benefit from 7-day tutor support, by email, telephone, or live video support.
  • If your employees are struggling with aspects of the course, our tutors are always happy to arrange a live video tutoring session to get them back on track.
  • All employers will be provided with an employer login if requested, meaning you can track the progress of your employees on their course.
  • We are always happy to provide employers with progression reports if this is something you require.
  • UniCourse offers fixed volume discounts for employers who want to register more than one learner at a time (please contact us if you wish to be supplied with the corporate booklet detailing the discounts available).
