Would you like to study but can't find the time to travel to College on a regular basis? Our Distance Learning courses could be perfect for you as they offer a convenient and practical way to study and are a great way to achieve qualifications for both professional and personal reasons, while studying at a time and place that suits you.
The Distance Learning courses are fully on line and you will need a computer with access to the internet. Your welcome introduction and all the information you need to start your course will be e-mailed directly to you.
Where possible, reasonable adjustments will be made to support anyone with learning disabilities or difficulties.
There are no specific entry requirements however learners should have a minimum of level one in literacy and numeracy or equivalent.
Free of charge to most students over the age of 19, subject to an eligibility and postcode check. We are no longer able to offer free courses to some local authority areas.
Please contact us if you are aged 19-23 and do not yet have a full level 2 qualification (5 GCSEs grade A*-C, NVQ Level 2 or higher) as additional eligibility criteria may apply.
A fee of £100 will apply if you fail to complete within the agreed timescale or withdraw from the course.
