The following qualifications and programmes are planned for 2017. please note dates and prices are subject to change and are confirmed upon application.

 

Background

The Workers’ College is expanding its qualification offerings in 2017. Two such qualifications were submitted to the Council for Higher Education for approval in 2016. These are the Labour Studies Diploma and the Advanced certificate in Labour Law.

In future these will be central offerings of the Workers’ College. These programmes will initially run in a night class format. There are a number of reasons for this.

Many prospective candidates can not get the time off required to attend block release format education as has been generally used in the delivery of the funded programmes.

Consistent attendance discussion and study is in many ways a better process for learning where the student is able to review readings and complete formative assessments and tasks and be able to meet with the lecturer on an almost daily basis to discuss issues and secure support.

The costs involved are much lower than block release and this allows the College to keep the fees requirements as low as possible where funding is not yet available for these programmes.

The Workers’ College is currently seeking financial support for students to participate in these qualifications and when this becomes a reality an additional programme based on block release will be created, commencing in 2018. There will be limited seats if this does become available. This will add greater flexibility for learners needing to make up modules they may not have succeeded in or to supplement instruction.
