How does Distance Learning work?
We supply our students with approved course material and detailed instructions to complete assignments. You use email to submit your work as you complete each unit.
The assignments are marked by a Tutor, who will be assigned to you until you complete the course. No time limit!
If you need to speak to someone about your course, Student Support Advisors are trained to answer the majority of questions that can arise. If an Advisor cannot answer your question, the query will be passed to your Tutor, who may email you, or if it is appropriate, phone.
You compile a portfolio of evidence as per the instructions supplied.
Your Tutor will mark assignments promptly and give encouraging feedback. You will have the opportunity to re-submit your work if required.
Support is by phone and email.
