SHORT LEARNING PROGRAMMES
Short learning programmes give you the opportunity to study your field of interest in a manner that is quick, easy, and affordable. Oxbridge Academy offers a range of short learning programmes that you can study part-time from home via distance learning.
Read on to find out more about these short learning programmes, how you can benefit by studying them, and how you can enrol for your short learning programme throughout the year.
What is a short learning programme?
A short learning programme is type of study programme that is short in duration. This type of programme can take anywhere from a few hours to a few months to complete. At Oxbridge Academy, most of our short learning programmes can be completed in 6 – 8 months. However, because they are distance learning courses, you can complete them in much less time than that, or you can take a little longer to finish. It all depends on your own pace of study.
Why study a short learning programme?
Oxbridge Academy’s short learning programmes are valuable avenues of training for those who don’t have the time, money, or need to study towards a full qualification. However, there are also other specific reasons why you might want to study a short course:
Develop specialised skills
Short learning programmes are great because they allow you to develop specialised skills. Unlike more comprehensive courses, short learning programmes will often focus on a specific element of a profession (such as the Human Resource Management: Personnel Training Short Course, which focuses specifically on relevant aspects of staff training and development). These courses will allow you to boost your CV with unique skills. Short courses like these are also a great way to get skills training and vocational knowledge while you work. They act as quick skills-boosters that can help you build your career and move up in the world.
Gain fundamental knowledge of a field
Other short courses, such as the Project Management: Basic Project Management Concepts Short Course, focus on giving you introductory knowledge and skills in a certain subject. These courses are a great way to test out a subject before deciding whether you want to commit to studying it full-time. These courses allow you to save a lot of time and money by allowing you to learn the basics first, before deciding whether you really want to pursue that particular direction of study.
