Qualt is the first mobile professional skills MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) platform to deliver free access to internationally-recognised training for professionals. Qualt offers a series of entry-level, free professional training courses that are explicitly linked to career development and progression. The mobile courses from Qualt are based on courses developed by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), Google, the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM) and other professional bodies. The new platform aims to open up access to qualifications for school-leavers, university graduates, young professionals and career changers. Uniquely, each course is fully contained within a free downloadable app allowing users to learn anywhere on their Android or iOS phone.

Being fairly new, Qualt has launched just 3 course apps to date, ‘Intro to Accounting’, which is based on the same syllabus as the AAT Access course, ‘Intro to Marketing’, course from the IDM (Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing) & ‘Athlete MOOC’, created in partnership with the International Olympic Committee.

A series of other courses are in the making, covering the core Business disciplines, Information Technology, Internet & Web Design, Professional Sports Development with more to follow. The apps use ‘m-learning’ modules to deliver teaching, alongside practical tests that measure the user’s understanding and ability to undertake actual day-to-day professional tasks.

These courses are accessible for free via mobile apps and online.
