The courses are self paced so learners can complete at their own pace during your access period of 3, 6 or 12 months.
Our courses differ slightly in price but enrolling 5+ learners on any of our courses means you get a reduced price per head. Furthermore, if you want to give your group access to two or more courses, access to the second and any additional courses are reduced a further 50%.
Contact us with your course/s choice and your number of learners for a tailored quote.
Simply send us your learners' names and emails and we'll email them their logins directly.
Once the access starts, your learners log into our online platform. They get 24/7 access and can complete the modules in their own time around their busy schedules.
Want learner analytic reports exclusively for your institution or a tailored email communication plan to motivate your learners? Let us know and we can discuss options with you.

We know that balancing work, family responsibilities, and online learning can be hard, so SAGE Campus courses are all self-paced.
We do not set assignment or module completion deadlines. We send occasional emails to motivate your group, but we find it’s best not to contact learners too frequently as everyone learns at a different pace.
The dedicated SAGE Campus learning support team are always at hand to answer any IT or technical queries your learners have. Learners can contact the team directly through the platform.
Additional support for your group can be arranged depending on your requirements. If your group has some experience already and you feel that they won’t benefit from a course instructor, we can keep support to a minimum. Alternatively, we can offer live Q&A sessions or email support with a subject expert at an additional cost. We’re happy to discuss your desired learning outcomes with you and suggest a solution that suits your learning needs.
If you would like to keep track of how your group is doing we can create personalised learner reports as an optional extra. Once we get a sense of your group’s learning outcomes we can work together finding out what information will be most beneficial and how often these reports should be created.
Yes we provide courses on a variety of subjects and you can sign groups up to as many courses as you choose. You get a further discount for enrolling a group on two or more courses.
We will issue you a sales agreement and invoice.
