Without my tutor I couldn't have achieved the grades I got. He has been nothing but an inspiration, ready with answers to my never-ending questions, going over the same things again and again until I understood, never being too busy or having to wait weeks before I received feedback on an assessment. Thanks to his ability in creating confidence within me I now have the belief that I can achieve what once I thought was impossible!
Studied creative writing
I was studying at my local Sixth Form College however they didn’t offer A Level Politics, so I decided to complete it with Open Study College instead. I was confident they would provide the support I needed to work alongside my course. Being allocated a personal tutor meant there was someone on hand throughout my learning to offer guidance and help if and when I needed it.
Studied A Level Politics
There was a teaching assistant role opening up within the school but I needed a CACHE qualification in order to be considered - there was only 5 months to do it! I enrolled with OSC and was able to complete the course and the required 100 placement hours within the required time. I was offered the job! I’ve now moved onto Level 3 purely for my own personal growth.
Studied CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools
I’d been working professionally with SEN children for around 4 years and wanted to widen my knowledge around different areas and aspects of special needs. Distance learning meant I could continue with my job and fit studying around my life; not the other way around. I chose Open Study College because their support towards students is amazing and the courses are affordable.
Studied Special Educational Needs Level 3
I chose Open Study College because they offer a great choice of payment methods which suited my needs. The course has opened up further opportunities for me; I’ve since been offered the chance to complete my paramedic training with the Football Association. Distance learning courses allow people the opportunity to be what they want to be in life.
Sports Injury Level 3
I delivered 360 observations, essays, feedback and evidence which were very in depth. Yet, I had the beauty of working and studying around my children rather than 9-4 in a lecture room. This way of learning is absolutely perfect for anyone who needs an income whilst studying towards a new career.
Studied CACHE Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools
I'm currently an Accountant’s Assistant and chose distance learning to enable me to gain my qualifications and move along the career ladder as quickly as possible. I would like to thank OSC for their support so far. I am determined to continue my studies to become a professional accountant and perhaps even start my own accounting firm!
studied AAT
I chose distance learning because there was no travelling to the local college involved! And it allowed me to study when I best felt like it, meaning I could complete the course at my own pace. My motivation was mostly for personal achievement following a serious illness, and I also partly wanted to study to open up future employment opportunities which I’ve done now that I have successfully completed the course.
studied ICB Bookkeeping and Payroll
I have a condition called Fibromyalgia and some days are better than others, but I knew I could do distance learning at my own pace. I loved the whole course. My tutor was fab – patient and kind, and nothing was ever too much trouble. I’ve now been accepted for a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, and my aim is to become a counsellor after I’ve completed my degree.
Studied Introduction to Counselling
