Things to know

  • What we mean by CIPD ‘distance learning’

    Face-to-face sessions:  At Busec, CIPD ‘distance learning’ means we work with you, wherever you are based. When you join us you are paired-up with a personal tutor, who supports you to complete your qualification.  Location permitting, your personal tutor will come and meet you in person to plan assignments. If location does not permit this easily; you may both decide to meet over a live link (Skype, webcam, whatsapp, facetime). Our tutors work inside and outside office hours and across time zones. When you sign-up with us, we take your brief, and then pair you up with a tutor who matches your needs.

    Help planning assignments: As with all learning, there is a component of ‘self-managed study’ that you will need to factor into your CIPD qualification; your tutor will help you plan for this and contextualise your work, in circumstances where practical observations and role-play form part of the assignment requirements. In addition to meetings in person, we also work by email and by telephone. Workshops are available for group bookings, please speak to us to find out more.

    Cloud-based submission: All students at Busec are provided with cloud-based course folders on a learning platform from which to submit assignments. Our folders carry links to rich data and live-updated research and resources, so that students have everything they need to hand, to help them complete assignments well and on deadline.

  • The time it takes to complete a qualification

    Each level and qualification ‘type’ comes with a set learning period; click here for further information. 

    When you are ready to start, you will be supported to create your own timetable for your studies. Your personal tutor will help you make sure you factor in good time for work and other responsibilities.

    As soon as your schedule is confirmed; you can then get on with your learning. Your tutor stays with you for the duration of your programme, helping you plan and complete assignments while supporting you to keep on track with your time-management.

    Most students who create a schedule in advance, complete their studies within the time they want to.

    Extensions to the learning period may be accessed by students with mitigating circumstances and we are able to offer some variations to submission formats for people who require reasonable adjustments. Extra-time for students who exceed the set learning period can be allocated on a discretionary basis. In such circumstances it is likely there will be an additional fee to pay.
