Work-based Learning

UCQ work closely with employers to develop and deliver work-based training to existing and new employees to meet sector priorities, succession planning, personal development and, where appropriate, inter-work progression.

The aims of each programme ensure employees develop knowledge, skills and behaviours within the workplace to improve on their current practices and provide training for future opportunities.  Where required, programmes include non-funded, value added, providing opportunities to gain additional qualifications.
