Professional education with ABE qualifications

ABE qualifications are designed to provide our alumni with the skills employers need.

When you employ an ABE graduate you can be confident you are employing someone with a qualification of the highest standard and the ability to make a real difference in the workplace, so much so that many employers sponsor their employee's study.  The reason for this is often because the employer has seen a direct benefit from having ABE-qualified staff in their organisation.

ABE offers full diplomas in business management, human resources and marketing, these match the stages of a Bachelors degree.  We also offer shorter courses based around entrepreneurialism and employability.
