Fit study around work and family commitments, and work at your own pace. We offer:

  • Accredited training.
  • Our management team have a successful 15-year track record in distance learning.
  • One-to-one support from an expert tutor, starting on the day you enrol.
  • Flexible study – work as quickly or as slowly as you want, and take a study break whenever you need to.

All You Need is 3 Hours a Week!

Many people are daunted by the idea of returning to study. We understand that – it can be a scary thought if you’re already juggling work and family commitments. That’s why we’ve made our courses as flexible as possible. With distance learning, you can retrain for a new career or develop new work skills in just 3 hours a week!

Our courses are designed to be flexible, so you can fit them around the needs of your lifestyle. You can take a study break of up to 12 months if you need to, and when you return we’ll supply up-to-date material at no extra cost.

One to One Support

We offer more intensive tutor support than any other provider. Your personal tutor will be there to answer questions and talk through any problems from the day you enrol until the day you complete your course. (And many of our students stay in touch with their tutor afterwards too!)

You can contact your tutor by email or instant chat at any time, so you’ll never feel alone. Whether you’re studying in the evening or at weekends, your tutor is only an email away. We never use call centres, all of our students are connected directly to their personal tutor.

Easy to Follow Course Materials

Our course materials are developed by subject expert and carefully designed to ensure learning is easy and enjoyable.

The high quality of our courses and tutorial support means that we are now established as one of the leading providers in the UK. Many companies, organisations and charities within Europe choose our courses for their employees, including national health trusts, education authorities and international companies.
