Work based learning

What makes it so effective?

Work-based learning offers great benefits for learners as it enables employees to gain valuable skills whilst contributing to the productivity of their company. By learning "on the job" candidates can:

  • Achieve recognition for skills accrued through work experience.
  • Achieve increased confidence in their skills and abilities knowing that qualifications achieved are benchmarked against national standards of competency.
  • Relate learning to the practicalities of their day to day work and challenges.
  • Keep skills up to date with industry development and relate learning to previous experience.
  • Learners are “in charge” of their own learning and can proceed at a pace that suits them with minimal disruption to productivity.
  • Make practical and immediate application of new skills to roles and responsibilities within the workplace.
  • Be kept informed of progress and have a clear understanding of progression routes.
