We’re delighted to be able to offer a selection of online/distance learning courses. These carefully selected qualifications have been designed to enhance and enrich an already established knowledge of the child care and social care system.

Our courses are available to anyone over the age of 19 and who has lived within the EU for the past 3 years who want to add extra esteem to their CV.

Distance Learning allows you to study at your own pace, on your own terms and gain valuable transferable skills such as planning and research which are intrinsic to the care sector. With dedicated support and assistance always on hand, you will be assisted throughout your qualification to enable you to achieve your best possible results.
