Frequently Asked Questions

What is online learning? 

Quite simply, it is learning remotely (at home or at work, rather than in a college) which is delivered online with digital workbooks, completed through a virtual platform. 

You’ll study in your own time, at your own pace. But don’t worry, you won’t be studying alone. Once you receive your course information, you’ll also be given an assessor who will be able to support your learning and answer any queries that you may have. 

Whether you’re looking for a new venture or looking to improve your career by learning new skills, then one of our online courses could be for you.  

Will online learning be right for me?
