Home Study

Home Study and Distance Learning works for everyone

Our short courses qualifications are designed to fit easily around your own lifestyle. You’ll study whenever you want, at your own pace, and there are no strict deadlines!

Sometimes it’s difficult to find the time to get upskilled when you really need to. It may be that your employer doesn’t have a range of training opportunities, or perhaps you need (or want) to improve your CV without enrolling onto a big programme of study at a traditional college. That’s why we’ve developed these Awards as home study options – you can keep motivated, complete your work, get qualified and move on.

You don’t need to attend any tutorials as these can be kept via email and telephone with prior appointment.

Fully accredited by OCN London and OFQUAL approved

All of our home study qualifications are accredited by OCN London at Level 2 and Level 3. OCN London is an established awarding organisation which specialises in providing short course qualifications from Entry Level through to Level 5.

When you’ve completed your course, and gained accreditation, your CV will be much improved and you’ll probably find it easier to secure enhanced employment, especially if you gain an Award (like these) which is a recognised qualification.

We undertake full Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) of completed learners’ work on a regular basis. This means that enrolments can be taken all year round, not just during the traditional term times. When you have the most time to study we’ll be there to support you.

Expert Tutors

All our distance learning programmes are written and delivered by experts in their field, and are teachers across all key stages. This means that the guided learning is provided in bite-sized and easily absorbed chunks, which is contextualised and meaningful and will give you a fantastic learning opportunity from the moment you start your study programme.

Gaining new employment

Most people we meet are aiming higher in their job or setting out on a brand new career path. But whether you’re just getting started in employment or going for a change, your career prospects will be improved.
