Gloucestershire College offers new blended learning courses

Gloucestershire College is launching a new, flexible way to gain professionally accredited accounting and legal qualifications.

Lack of time is a common complaint for those who want to complete the training they need to advance their career, so from September, GC will help people to achieve industry-recognised qualifications via a blended learning model, delivered online and on campus. The new courses on offer are:

CILEx Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice: This qualification provides a well-rounded introduction to law and legal practice, developing the skills and knowledge required for a variety of paralegal roles.

AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting Level 2: This qualification provides a solid foundation in financial administration, covering areas such as double entry bookkeeping, basic costing principals and using accounting software.

Training will be delivered through a combination of flexible online learning and fortnightly evening classes at the GC campuses - CILEx in Gloucester and AAT in Cheltenham and Gloucester. The courses will give learners the freedom to fit their studies in around life commitments, while still giving them access to the support of face-to-face lectures.

Delivered in partnership with Mindful Education, the CILEx Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice offers an ideal professional development opportunity for those already working within a legal firm, and can also act as the first step towards becoming a Chartered Legal Executive.

The Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting is accredited by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and provides an ideal entry point to a range of administration and finance roles. As well as supporting professional development, the course is also suitable for school-leavers and those returning to the workplace.

Both blended learning courses offer flexible study without compromising on quality, with students benefitting from online interactive exercises and in-class support throughout their training.
