Since the United Kingdom joined the European Union in 1973, our membership has changed the face of employment law and in conjunction with social policy developments; the employment law world has seen a shift to rebalance the powers and rights between both employer and employee.

Our Level 3 Diplomas have been specifically written for us by qualified distance learning course writers who are qualified to at least Level 5 or above. The Level 3 Diplomas are 1 year courses comprising 10 modules followed by an online examination. The course is pitched at Level 3 so is the equivalent level of study as an A Level. On successful completion of the exam, an Oxford College Diploma certificate is issued.
An A Level is a 2 year course that follows a specific syllabus provided by the corresponding examining body such as Edexcel, AQA and OCR. The A Level carries UCAS points depending on the grade achieved. The A Level is on Level 3 of the National Qualifications Network. A Levels are assessed by exams which have to be attended in person. A Level certificates are provided by the examining boards.

How is this course structured?
The Level 3 Employment Law course is divided into ten comprehensive modules:
The UK legal system and employment law
This introductory module places the subject within its context introducing both the UK legal system and the various machinery which has the task of deciding disputes and enforcing the law.
What is a contract and why is it important in this context
The basis of the employment relationship remains the contract of employment; this module examines the key concerns within this area and the determination of employment status.
Contents of the contract of employment
This module explores the essential legal duties of the parties to the employment relationship in greater detail.
Termination of the contract of employment
There are a number of ways whereby an employment relationship can be terminated; this module explores the legal background to termination of contract and looks at some of the specific areas in more detail.
Redundancy and transfer of undertakings
This module continues with the general theme of the previous module but concerns itself with situations which have arisen as a result of economic factors rather than legalistic considerations.
Remuneration and hours of work
This module concentrates upon coverage of the various provisions relating to the more important terms and conditions of employment.
Discrimination within the employment relationship
The potential forms of unlawful discrimination have increased dramatically over the past decade; it is the task of this module to examine these and place them within their context.
Health and safety within the workplace
It seems quite commonplace to read of organisations complaining with regards to further responsibilities being placed upon them as a result of action by government bodies. This module explores the regulatory health and safety framework and the key duties it places upon both parties in the employment relationship.
The influence of European law has increased quite dramatically over the past 25 years and appears to be set to continue to do so. This module identifies what the sources of European law actually are and how they influence the nature of UK employment law.
Collective aspects of employment law
During the course of the previous units we have considered the legal framework relating to employment law. In this final module we look at the various legal rules relating to the activities of trades unions and how they can operate within the framework of the law in attempting to advance the interests of their members.
