College leading the way with business courses
Shrewsbury College is the first FE College in the country to be approved to deliver the complete range of courses from the Association of Business Executives (ABE).
The prestigious status means that the College are able to deliver seven new courses at a variety of levels in multiple management disciplines from September 2013.
“Students will have the opportunity to study a variety of themes including Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Tourism,” explained Assistant Principal at the College, Catherine Armstrong. “In 2014/15 we will expand the offer to include Level 7 options, which can help fast track students to university.”
The full and part-time courses will be housed in a bespoke Business Centre at the College’s London Road campus, where students will be able to study in a professional working environment. With flexible modes of study available, students will be able to fit their course around their work and family commitments.
“Whether you’re employed or looking for work, the ABE provides flexible professional business qualifications that help you gain the necessary skills to tackle work projects and situations more effectively,” said Mrs Armstrong. “This in turn gives you the potential to earn a promotion within your organisation or a platform from which to progress onto a Bachelors, Masters or MBA degree course around the world.”
“There’s never been a better time to have marketable skills. ABE qualifications allow you to get ahead of the competition and in an increasingly competitive job market, it is essential that you give yourself every chance to succeed.”
The ABE was founded by a group of senior academics, Politians and business people to provide flexible, professional business qualifications. The Association now operates internationally and offers students the opportunity to experience the truly globalised business market.
Changes to funding mean that some students will be eligible to study an ABE course for free. For more information, please call the Shrewsbury College Course Information Team on 01743 342342.
