Free Online Courses (Distance Learning)

Our online courses are ideal for employers looking to upskill their staff and individuals aiming to progress their career. We offer an online, flexible delivery option, designed to minimise costs and fit around your organisational and personal needs.

Our e-assessor platform is an extremely popular method due to its ease of use and flexibility: it allows learners to complete assessments via any internet-enabled device, anywhere, anytime. However, we provide hard-copy resources as well, if you prefer to study offline.


Distance Learning Option

Once you have picked a course to study and completed the enrolment forms, you will be provided with a study pack. The pack contains a number of knowledge books and assessment workbooks, dependent on the course you have chosen. You will read the knowledge books and then answer the questions in the assessment workbooks to show that you have gained the knowledge and understanding from the knowledge book.
You submit your answers as per your delivery plan given to you at the beginning of the course. Your answers will be either posted to the college for marking or you can choose to submit your answers online via our E-Assessor platform.
