Brand new for Autumn 2018, we have a whole new suite of Health and Social Care distance learning courses. Distance learning is a great way to achieve desirable qualifications while studying at a time and pace that suits you.

We’re offering distance learning courses in mental health, dementia care, understanding autism, adult social care, care planning, management of diabetes and more. These courses are ideal for anyone working in a health or social care environment, or looking to move into this sector. Alternatively, you may be interested in these courses for personal reasons and are looking for more information or understanding of a particular topic.

After enrolment onto your chosen Distance Learning course, you will be required to attend an induction to receive key information about your chosen course.

Most students over the age of 19 will be able to study this course for free, however, please contact us if you are aged 19-23 and do not yet have a full level 2 qualification (5 GCSEs grade A*-C, NVQ Level 2 or higher) as additional eligibility criteria may apply.
