What are the benefits of distance learning?

Have you heard about the benefits of distance learning?
It’d be surprising if you hadn’t, as distance learning is becoming more and more popular in recent times.
And it’s no surprise with the amount of benefits that it provides.
Let’s start with the basics:

What is distance learning?

If you don’t know, you’re not alone. There are a few people who aren’t familiar with distance learning; people that we still need to try to convert.
Distance learning means undertaking and engaging with a course, studies or class from home. Instead of attending classes or lectures at a bricks and mortar college, all materials are provided by an establishment and sent directly to you.

What are the benefits of distance learning?

Well… where do we start?

  • Flexible timetable

As you learn from home, you are in control of your own learning hours. Choose when and where you wish to study and at a pace that suits you.

  • Award-winning tutor support

You will be provided with one of our tutors to support you through your study journey to ensure you make the most of your studies. This includes our award-winning bookkeeping tutor, Caroline Wren.

  • Recognised qualifications

Some of the courses we offer are provided by recognised organisations that employers will love; such as CACHE, Active IQ, A Levels and GCSEs (and yes, they are the same as the ones you would study in school!) We even offer university level courses!

  • Range of courses

With over 450 courses there is something for everyone. Our courses range from Beauty Therapy and Child Care to Accounting and Business. In addition, there are various levels and certifications to suit your career needs.

  • Great value for money

With distance learning, all you pay for is the course. There are no added fees to cover the cost of establishment hire, and you don’t need to worry about travel costs. PLUS, from time to time we offer great discounts on some of our courses to save you even more pennies!
So, if that’s not enough to convince you, why not call our Student Adviser team on 03300 563100.
