Distance learning is an excellent option that can provide you with the necessary flexibility for learning at your own pace. You are empowered to organise your own schedule because you can choose where and when you want to study. Distance learning is useful if you want to gain qualifications from somewhere else in the world and do not want to travel.

There is a huge range of courses to choose from, including:

  • Health and social care
  • Business administration
  • Customer service
  • Team leading and management
  • Equality and diversity
  • Information, advice and guidance

Further Information

By studying through a distance learning course, you do not have to put your life on hold to get the qualification and skills you want. You will gain plenty of one-to-one contact and social interaction during the course to reassure you and get updates on your progression.
