Oxford College of London (OCL) is a private independent higher education college which has been operating in London for around six years. OCL has a vast experience of offering Edexcel BTEC courses at Level 4, Level 5 and Level 7 to students worldwide.

Besides offering Edexcel BTEC Level 4, Level 5 and Level 7 one-year courses, OCL also offers Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Edexcel qualifications in various specialties. The complete list of their courses offered via e-learning can be viewed at http://www.ocl.ac/e-learning-courses.html

These qualifications will equip employees with the necessary managerial and business skills required by the employers. Depending on what skills a company wants its employees to achieve, OCL’s wide range of courses will enable employees to think strategically and excel in the area they function. These qualifications/diplomas will provide employees with the skills to comprehend the theoretical concepts, analyse them, relate and apply these concepts to real-life situations and synthesize a new process to be implemented.

Furthermore, employees can achieve these qualifications via e-learning. This means they do not have to be off from the work to study and can acquire these skills while working. They will be able to balance between learning and working. By learning while working, employees can apply their knowledge at their work place and strive to improvise their functions and enhance their creativity.

Edexcel is the UK’s largest awarding body and provides academic and vocational qualifications and testing to more than 25000 schools, colleges, employers worldwide. Edexcel’s qualifications are more practically oriented. These qualifications will equip employees with the skills to be creative, imaginative, innovative, critical thinkers, reflective learners, and independent enquirers.

All OCL’s tutors are qualified and appropriately screened by Edexcel. They have several years of experience of delivering Edexcel courses. Employees would be in continuous communication with the college’s tutors and they will guide employees through the course material, set and mark their work and provide constructive feedback on their progress.

Employees would also be able to access online chat rooms, in-built into OCL’s virtual learning management system, where they can easily communicate to their tutors. They would also be able to leave their messages online to receive their responses.

The college’s stimulating lecture materials and prompt feedback time from tutors will encourage staff to be committed to their studies.

  •  The ability to manage themselves, others and practices within the sector they are working or planning to work
