Will your employer support you?

Some part-time courses are set up by employers, sometimes working with HE providers specifically set up to meet the needs of the workplace. These are likely to be part-time to fit in with working hours and funded by the employer.

Other courses may be beneficial to the employer but not provided by them. Types of support may include:

  • Financial help
  • Time off for studying, attending college, completing assignments
  • Mentoring and access to experienced staff
  • Help to develop work-based projects
  • Access to computers, software and other resources
