About Us

Borders Connect is one of the UK's leading training providers. Between them, our management team have over 40 years of experience in distance and online learning. We understand the needs of learners and have a strong track record of helping them to achieve the results they want. We're accredited by the ODLQC and registered as a provider with the Online Learning Council. We're also accredited as a provider by the ACCPH.

How it Works

Our courses are delivered directly to your inbox so you can save your couse to your computer or print it off, if you prefer. This means you don't need to be online to work through your course material, and can save your notes for future reference. You'll work with expert tutors who understand the needs of online learners. You can chat to a member of your support team between 9am and 9pm, seven days a week, via our online support service. 

Explore our Courses

We offer courses across a range of areas, most leading to accredited, external qualifications, such as the RHS Horticulture certificates, while others lead to accredited, Continuing Professional Development qualifications for education staff, counsellors, coaches and other professionals. Subjects include counselling, coaching, school mentoring, play therapy, writing, copy-editing, proofreading, horticulture, and gardening. 

It's been my privilege to work with distance learning students for over 30 years. I've seen how technology has advanced over this time, completely transforming education. At Borders Connect we try to combine the best of both traditions - old and new - our courses are delivered online and our experienced support team is available at the click of a button, seven days a week. At the same time, we value the expertise of our tutors and the best quality course material - those things remain as important as they have ever been.
