A learning provider has developed a way to enable students to acquire qualifications in information technology from the comfort of their own home.
Professional Pathways, launched by Resource Development International (RDI), allows students, who may be employed or considering a career move, to gain the professional qualifications needed to secure top positions in the IT industry.
Students can choose from "pathways" which include management, finance, and information technology, while those without basic qualifications can study a variety of A level courses from which they can progress to higher education.
"Self improvement and good qualifications are, without question, a good investment. Statistics prove time and time again that the better the qualification, the higher the benefits," says John Holden, founder and managing director of RDI. "But it isn't just about money and jobs, it is about feeling good about yourself by fulfilling your potential," he adds.
The company says its flexible learning structure might appeal to someone who left school without qualifications or lacks the necessary qualifications to move into a more fulfilling career, but cannot afford to undertake full time education.
Professional Pathways students are able to set their own pace to suit their lifestyle or working hours. Those who have a job can therefore continue to earn, avoiding the financial burdens that often go hand-in-hand with further education.
