University Programmes

14th April 2016

We are working with Universities to enhance their current degrees with vocational based qualifications.

Current provision is within the Health and Fitness sector, helping tutors with the supply and delivery which enables students to look for professional work within the industry.

With the University working as a satellite centre and weaving the content within current programme delivery, we have been able to remove the need for individual centres having to apply for their own award body status, offer full support, tutor and learner resources, registrations and certifications, become an Astara Training satellite centre with the ability to utilise our Platinum Partner status AND full Internal Quality Assurance throughout the programme. Delivered by staff already in-site, we ensure they are registered as tutors for Astara with YMCA Awards . For further details of our comprehensive support programmes or a no obligation quotation for services, please contact us here.
