Whether you're looking to improve your job prospects, advance your career, develop your workforce or challenge yourself to try something new, UHOVI has a course for you. Here are five reasons to study with UHOVI:
1. Courses on your doorstep
With UHOVI you don't have to worry about travelling far, as learning happens right across the Valleys region. You can study for a university qualification at your local college, within your workplace if you're already employed, and some courses even take place in community venues. This means you can improve your skills and qualifications without the need to move away and more importantly, without building up significant debt.
2. Friendly and supportive
As our courses are delivered in local venues, you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome. Colleges in the region are smaller than universities and you'll probably be studying with like-minded people, some of whom you may even know. Tutors offer support and encouragement to help you achieve your goals plus specialist advice and guidance is on offer to help you overcome any obstacles to learning.
3. Flexibility and choice
There are opportunities to study bite-sized or longer courses, full-time or part-time, in all kinds of subjects. You can accumulate modules to build up to a higher education qualification, most courses have step off points or you can opt to study over a longer period of time. Some courses are delivered during the day and others can be studied in the evening or via distance learning, so you can fit studying around your work and life commitments meaning you can even earn whilst you learn.
4. A stepping stone to a brighter future
If you haven't studied for a while, jumping straight in to a degree course can be intimidating. That's why we encourage you to take learning one step at a time. You can start with bite-sized modules, then as your knowledge and confidence increases, move on to a higher qualification. Many bite-sized courses or short qualifications count towards higher level study making it easy to continue your learning journey. UHOVI is developing clear pathways and progression routes in a number of subject areas to help you plan your future career.
5. Tailored to meet the needs of local business
UHOVI courses are specifically designed to reflect the needs of existing and growing industries in the Valleys region, so qualifications are relevant to local businesses. Our courses aim to improve the skills of the local workforce plus we can provide customised training packages to deliver maximum benefit for employers. We offer a wide range of short accredited courses and professional qualifications suitable for a variety of roles and levels.
