Online Learning

Online learning is a way of learning remotely without attending lessons in a classroom or having regular face to face contact with a tutor. This means you can study at home, at a time that suits you, with the freedom to revisit areas of the course as little or as much as you like without having to keep the same pace as others. Our flexible start dates mean your course starts when you apply and receive your welcome email. This normally takes around 48 working hours so only apply when you are ready to start as we don’t like to keep our students waiting!

Once you are successful with your application you will be invited to join an online induction along with an AI recording of the induction. You will also be allocated one of our highly experienced and friendly tutors.

Each qualification may vary in the expected length of time for you to complete your qualification that your funding will allow for.

  • Level 2 – 15 Weeks*
  • Level 3 – 20 Weeks

Our online courses allow you to study around current commitments such as work, family and hobbies, and is a cost-effective way to learn, saving costs incurred in travelling.

The below level 2 courses we allow 20 weeks due to the size of the qualification.

Business Administration
Mental Health Awareness
Team Leading
Customer Service
Principles of Dementia Care
Working in Adult Social Care
