Semester: Learning & Development Ltd



Semester L&D was formed in October 2014 as a result of a need for flexible learning for an apprenticeship scheme. From those small acorns, we have grown up. We started offering the courses we were making for the apprentices, as stand-alone courses. It started with Telecoms, which had some common ground with IT, then included Engineering, as there was also some common units. From here it grew to include HNC and now HND’s in both Computing and Engineering and now Fire Safety.

Completely online, all our tutors and assessors work from home. All have industry experience, some still in industry, not straight from University.


Company Vision Statement
