Distance Learning


What is distance learning?

Distance learning allows you to do just that – study at a distance, wherever you want, whenever you want – you don’t have to be based local to us or travel to any of our campuses, you simply plug in and progress with your chosen course with support from our Distance Learning team.

Study in the comfort of your own home and flexibly around your existing commitments, at a pace that suits you.

With a variety of subject areas for you to choose from including health and social care, mental health, education and training, nutrition and health and business management, we can help you gain the skills that matter the most to you.

Whether you’re looking to update or upskill for an existing job, or take a first step towards a new career, these courses can help you, whatever your needs.
