Learning in work can ensure that your learning is wholly relevant to the job you do. It provides a practical element to your qualification that proves you have the knowledge and the ability to apply it to your job. Many employers will have their own training programmes which may include on-the-job training, one-to-one mentoring, online or distance learning and external training and academic courses.
Such learning takes place at all levels of qualification and can continue throughout your working life.
Work based learning can help you:
• Gain qualifications and skills
• Meet new work challenges
