DurhamLearn FREE CPD Courses
DurhamLearn would like to inform you of a fantastic offer we have available during February. As part of the projects pilot phase we are offering a range of short CPD courses (previously Short Vocational Qualifications) that are fully accredited and designed to enhance skill levels and improve productivity.
There is usually a charge of £50 per qualification but we are offering them FREE to anybody who signs up in February and completes by the end of March (very achievable).
There are five qualifications available.
L1 Health & Safety
L1 Equality & Diversity
L1 Mental Health & Wellbeing
L1 Healthy Living
L2 Healthy Living
Full course overviews are available on the website www.durhamlearn.co.uk/ascentis
We have a small amount of capacity to deliver to groups of learners in the workplace (8+) as part of the pilot and I wondered if this was something that your organisation could benefit from.
Once learners are enrolled they can study online at home and then book to sit their exam at one of our test centers throughout March (dates available through the virtual learning environment) we can also run an exam session in the workplace if that meets the learner need.
If you have a group of staff, volunteers or clients of 8 or more that would benefit from completing one or more of these qualifications please respond to this email with your contact telephone number before the 5th February and we will contact you to discuss your requirements.
