Distance Learning - A New Way to Develop your Workforce!

Boston College can now support your workforce development through a wide range of accredited qualifications which can be studied through our Distance Learning platform. Itā€™s a chance for you to reward ambitious and motivated staff or provide a far reaching upskilling programme, equipping your teams to adapt to the fast pace of change in our working environments. Whatā€™s more, for most people living or working in Lincolnshire this training is available at no cost.

A choice of courses to suit changing business needs -Ā For a full list of our Distance Learning courses, please visit our 'Distance Learning' course page. The courses cover key areas of development for growing businesses including Computing/IT, Team leadership, Lean Manufacturing Operations, Business Administration and Wellbeing.

How does it work? -Ā For groups of 6 or more from one employer, we will organise a live tutor led introductory session (it may still be remote) to set the learning programme in the context of your business plans.Ā Donā€™t worry if you donā€™t have a large cohort, the beauty of distance learning is that it is also available for individual enrolment.

Your staff then enrol on their chosen programme, work through the course material and submit assignments which are in turn assessed. The courses can be studied at their own pace but usually take around 14 weeks. Again where you have a group completing the training we can provide a supporting evaluation session which may also identify next steps in training or personal development for those who were successful.
