Welcome to The Business School short courses section. These courses are designed to support your Continuing Professional Development at beginner, intermediate and advanced level.

CPD is vital in any role to ensure you are maintaining your currency as well as helping you familiarise yourself with new environments. So even if you have a high level of qualification and/or experience in one area, such as Finance, you may find yourself working in a logistics environment and want to find out more about that. So you can pick any topic at any level to help your learning.

Each course ends with a quiz, so you can test yourself if you wish, and download a certificate of completion which can be added to your CV.

We just wanted to let you know that all our short courses are based on full qualification courses, awarded by globally renowned awarding organisations such as The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK, and The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management.

By completing a short course, you have already taken a significant step on the way and covered parts of that qualification, so you now have a great opportunity to take that further. You can enrol on our qualification courses immediately! You would have full support of one of our expert tutors to help you gain a valuable qualification to add to your CV.

Our qualification courses are assessed by assignment, delivered fully online, so you can study wherever, whenever you want.


These are distance learning courses which can commence at any time
