Online & Distance Learning Courses

Our online and distance learning courses are ideal for employers looking to upskill their staff and also for 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. You can also complete the course through a work booklet, which will give you time away from the screen. Learn more about the application and enrolment process by visiting our How to Apply page.

If you choose the online option, 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.

Alternatively, we provide hard-copy resources, if you prefer to study offline. Once you have picked a course to study and completed the enrolment process, 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 can read more about the distance learning option here.
