Subsidised Distance Learning & E-Learning Courses

Our distance learning courses are based around self-tutoring workbooks or online study resources with end of unit assessments completed online or paper based, all course learning material you can keep for future reference.  A tutor will be allocated to you to support you through your studies and give feedback on your unit assessments. All courses are 16 - 20 weeks and we recommend that allow yourself a minimum of 4 to 6 hours study time a week.

These course are part subsidised by the Education & Skills Funding Agency and so there is no cost to you or your employer, but if you do not complete the course inside the agreed timescale without a valid reason, you will be charged £125.
