Choose from a selection of courses on employment law topics that interest you, develop your skills and keep up to date in this fast moving area of employment law.  New courses will be added throughout the year.  You can test your knowledge with self-test questions and it is up to you how many courses you wish to access. 

The subscription will give you immediate access (once you have enrolled) to a dedicated blackboard site containing a number of employment law CPD courses and you are entitled to access as many of them as you wish.  The courses provide at least 1 hour of CPD, and have been designed to develop your knowledge as well as provide CPD hours.  They are intuitive and straightforward to use.  All the courses are available anywhere in the world online through the blackboard site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so you will not need to purchase any additional software.  

Current courses are either a story-line scenario or online learning text. The story-lines are a visual story which you click through to access further information such as case law or relevant legislation with a click of your mouse and you are then given options to test your knowledge.  A certificate of completion can be printed off at the end of these.  The online learning text provides up to date materials on the topic with links direct to the legislation and case law with a click of your mouse.
