Short Courses in Business & IT

At Lews Castle College UHI we offer short courses in Business, Administration & IT that will help you change career, broaden your existing knowledge and expertise, or give you an extra qualification to help you get that promotion.

Professional Development Awards (PDAs) are flexible qualifications for those working in an administrative role, or for anyone seeking to enter employment in this area. Our PDAs are excellent CPD courses and will provide career opportunities in different sectors.

If you want to gain a qualification but don’t want to commit yourself to long-term, part-time study, you can study this course over a year or less, allowing you to fit your studies around your personal and professional commitments. Courses are offered by blended learning and/or online, allowing you the flexibility to study and work at the same time.
