Cer­tifi­cate Programs

Your learn­ing expe­ri­ence will be rein­forced through work­ing in cul­tur­ally diverse peer action learn­ing sets. These will be the basis for team-​based activ­ity and action research. They will allow you to net­work and ben­e­fit from your fel­low student’s knowl­edge and experiences.
  • CILT (UK) Level 3 Cer­tifi­cate in Logis­tics and Trans­port (QCF): This is aimed at super­vi­sors, team lead­ers and aspir­ing man­agers.
