Distance learning for business

If you run a business or organisation, you know that success doesn't depend on your technology or premises, but on the skills and qualities of your people.

Ongoing learning and professional development can have a transformative effect on your business - and our Distance Learning courses enable your staff to build their knowledge and skills without having to take time off work.

Your business needs...

  • new skills and techniques
  • better leaders and managers
  • a more strategic approach to business problems

Whatever your needs, our courses are designed with the workplace in mind and will help your organisation thrive.

  1. The benefits for employers

    At Leeds Beckett, we have a great track record of working with business and professional bodies to ensure our courses deliver learning that has an impact from day one.

    Employers of all sizes are discovering that distance learning is a flexible way to business success:

    • Improved performance - staff learn new skills, which can be put to work immediately
    • Business as usual - staff study in their own time, fitting their studies around their work, family and social commitments, so there's no disruption to day-to-day business
    • Cost effectiveness - developing staff can be cheaper than hiring new employees and your commitment to staff development will help to mark you out as a great employer
    • Popularity - many of the world’s top firms sponsor staff through higher education.
