Studying with South Essex College and The Business School UK

We have designed these programmes to meet your specific needs. You will undergo learning by reading written materials, reviewing presentations, accessing external links to other websites, and downloading further information. You will be supported by a tutor throughout your studies and also attend sessions at the College.
Once you have worked through the programme of learning, you will be asked to undertake a particular piece of work, which will be assessed against the standards in the CILT (UK) qualifications. Once your assessor has confirmed that your work has reached the standard required, further quality assurance on that assessment will take place. Once this process is complete, you will be awarded the CILT (UK) qualification through The Business School.
