Committed to an ethos of life long learning the South West Institute of Technology offers existing employers the opportunity to assist their staff to continue their studies, up-skill for a promotion or embark on a new career. Remaining competitive in the contemporary training market may require the acquisition of new skills and knowledge and through individual units of competency or qualifications available at the Institute.
The South West Institute of Technology also offers opportunities for those who are currently employed in industry to gain formal recognition for the skills they’ve acquired in the workplace through the Recognition of Prior Learning process as this provides an alternate way of demonstrating and gaining acknowledgement for competencies attained. Available through the Institute, this process will enable you to accelerate the process of gaining a qualification and enhance your own professional development. Local employers have appreciated the benefits obtained in quality assurance, performance and productivity derived from the investment in acquisition of accredited qualifications for existing workers, a strategy that is also now supported for a number of vocations through government funding arrangements.
