Is this the right course for me?

In order for businesses to improve performance, change within the workplace has to take place. The change starts with the Business Improvement Techniques qualifications which will enable organisations to train their employees towards the competencies they will need.

BIT qualifications complement those already gained, but are equally appropriate as first qualifications. They are intended to maximise an organisation’s profit and revenue by the elimination of waste and the creation of flow through the business by reducing cost and variation. They are also intended to improve responsiveness by making more effective use of people and physical assets.

The NVQ Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship Diploma in Business Improvement Techniques (BIT) is a blend of classroom-based and workplace competency-based qualifications, ensuring you understand the concepts of Lean Manufacturing. This can lead to the implementation of business improvement within your job role to certified health and safety regulations.
