    Trusted independent accreditation

    All of our courses are independently accredited from long-established awarding organisations with qualifications such as CACHE, NCFE and A-Level. It’s easier to get a job when you have an employer recognised qualification.

    Each independent awarding body performs detailed, rigorous checks to ensure our courses meet their high standards.

    Study from home, at your own pace

    If you struggle to find time to study every day at a traditional college, a home learning course is an ideal solution. Over 100,000 people have studied with us from home and enjoyed full support from a tutor.

    You’ll study whenever you want, at your own pace. There are no strict deadlines (you’ll have up to a year and most of our courses require 80 hours of study- that’s around 1 hour and a half a week).

    You could complete your course in 2 weeks or 12 months – it’s up to you.

    Award-winning tutor support

    Our courses are studied entirely from home, but you still benefit from help every step of the way from our dedicated expert tutors who can be contacted via our award-winning e-learning site.
