Understand Employer Organisations - Level 2


Price is per online user of this course. Applicable EU VAT is added.

Employer organisations have a wide range of purposes, some want to make profits to satisfy their shareholders, others do not.  The aim of this unit is to learn about the difference between the different types of organisation in the private, public and voluntary sectors and how each type of organisation is set up against a specific legal structure.

You will understand how the operational functions of organisations are different depending on their size and structure and the various internal and external factors that influence how organisations operate.  You will learn how the impact of political, economic social technological, legal and environmental change has on organisations and the different models of analysis used by organisations to assess the impact and how they will be dealt with.

This  Level 2 course, from the Business Administration Level 2 suite of online courses, is mapped to UK National Occupational Standards ML1 L/506/1788.

Five stage learning process


i-Practice is a unique tool that simulates real world vocational activities in a virtual environment, bridging the gap between traditional textbook and workshop learning, enabling the development of practical skills.  It consists of two elements:

i-Practice (Training):  This guides you through a virtual activity with full instruction allowing you to acquire the necessary skills though the repetition of tasks.

i-Practice (Assessment):  This allows you to test your comprehension of the content.  You undertake the same activity as before but without instruction.  This enables you to apply what you have learnt, test your ability and set a benchmark to improve upon – ultimately working towards being job ready.


i-Ask provides core knowledge delivered through visuals, text and audio


iCheck reinforces your comprehension with informal testing and clear results – helping you identify strong and weak areas of understanding

i-Test This is formal testing which summarises your results
