This ABE qualification in human resources allows you the advantage to obtain a specialization combined with a high level of knowledge of general business management. With knowledge in a wide-ranging strategic understanding of business management coupled with expertise of HR, provides holders with a special skill set. It also provides you with a wider range of career options than a pure HR qualification.

 

Entrepreneurialism is embedded throughout the ABE programmes. This is a great benefit as employers increasingly value staff who demonstrate such abilities and, in an ever-changing job market, having the know-how to create your own business is an invaluable life skill

 

Students successful at the ABE Business Management Diploma Level 5 (RQF) or the Diploma Level 6 can gain immediate entry into the Final Year of the following degree programme offered by CTS:

The accelerated learning model allows students to complete their qualifications in the shortest possible time. This has become a popular of many undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. CTS College will be delivering the ABE RQF programme using the accelerated model of 4 semesters per year, with each semester running for a duration of 3 months. This allows students to finish a level in as little as 6 months (2 semesters). For students who wish to progress at a slower pace, the semester system allows students the flexibility to study just one unit at a time and finish a level over 18 months.

 

The ABE semester system works as follows:

Semester A

Semester B

Semester C

Semester D

January to March

March to June

July to September

September to December

 

The units offered in Semester A will be repeated in Semester C while the units offered in Semester B will be repeated in Semester D. This further allows a student to start in any semester (A, B, C or D) and complete the programme in the next semester, thereby completing the programme in just 2 semesters.

 

Each unit is assessed via an assignment only or an examination only. Assignments may be submitted in any of the four semesters (A, B, C or D) however examinations are only held at the end of Semesters B and D (June and December).

 

CTS College will be providing tuition for each unit however tuition for the Assignment only units will be done in Semesters A and C and tuition for the Examination only units will be done in Semesters B and D.
