Entry Requirements

Our courses are designed to be accessible to learners of all abilities. For most courses, there are no formal entry requirements, but you will need to be able to read and write English to a reasonable level, and have basic word-processing skills (e.g. using Microsoft Word or similar) for writing your assignments.

Distance Learning Plus - The benefits
Distance Learning is available to everyone, regardless of background, training or qualifications, and is a convenient way to improve employment prospects, subject knowledge, and raise self esteem. Huge costs above and beyond those associated with gaining the required knowledge (travel, accommodation, or giving up work), distance learning delivers a flexible, inexpensive and fun way to study.
The wide variety of courses and subject matter, many of which result in an accredited professional qualification universally recognised by employers, governing bodies and professional institutions, can be studied from home, in your spare time, at any time of the day or night. It is absolutely ideal for single parents, part-time workers, school leavers, those between jobs, and busy professionals wanting to undertake further qualifications in specialist fields. If you are working, the best part is that you can literally "learn while you earn".
Entry Requirments
All of our courses are designed to be studied by virtually anybody. You don't require any formal entry qualifications. We pride ourselves on producing quality learning accessible to all. As long as you can read and write reasonable English (for example, you can complete a job application form), you will be able to understand the materials. A healthy dose of enthusiasm for the subject will take you a long way!
Obviously, some of the higher-level courses (Level 4 and above) do assume that you have some background knowledge in the subject you are studying, but even these can be completed without provided you are prepared to read widely on the subject matter to fill in any knowledge gaps while studying. None of the courses require you to pass an exam at the end, so if exams "freak you out", you can relax - there won't be any!

If you're considering distance learning plus , but want to look at other providers to compare their offerings, the following checklist may help you choose:
  • 1. Is the subject matter completely in alignment with your chosen area of study?
  • 2. Is the course at a level you feel comfortable with, i.e. do you satisfy the entry requirements, and do you feel confident that you can maintain momentum throughout the course?
  • 3. If you are studying for a qualification, is that qualification accredited by Ascentis, VTCT or FAA, which are recognised by employers, professional associations, governing bodies, as well as national and international licensing authorities across the world.
  • 4. Do you have access to knowledgeable tutors throughout the course, and is there an online resource, or portal, that you can access 24/7/365? This is particularly important if you're one of those people who studies outside of regular business or office hours, or between working shifts, for example.
  • 5. Are all your course materials delivered at the start of your journey, so that you have all of the information at your fingertips without having to chase for delivery of the next module, or go searching for information that hasn't arrived yet?
Professional, Accredited Qualifications
Distance Learning Plus is accredited by Focus Awards, who are National Awarding Bodies regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England.
 
All of our courses meet the Awarding Bodies' Quality Assurance Standards, and we have 2 qualified Internal Verifiers on staff to ensure that they continue to do so.
Course materials and Delivery
One of the key benefits of studying with distance learning plus is that, unlike other distance learning providers, we deliver the entire package of course materials in a single online portal. This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the course, and chart their progress much more effectively.
The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers fragments the learning process and actively prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper concepts that require more thought and comprehension.
Online study through ilearn it easy
Students of distance learning plus automatically get FREE access to the acclaimed "iLearn it Easy" coursework management system...
which makes submitting assignments, getting feedback and critique, and interacting with other students on the course for mutual support, an absolute breeze! Push-button simplicity!
Dedicated professional personal tutors
On enrolling for a course with distance learning plus , students are assigned a Personal Tutor, who is an experienced professional in their field of study, and an expert in the subject matter.
The tutor is dedicated to your success, marks all submitted assignments, feeds back detailed critique, and is available for help and advice online through iLearn it Easy.
Methods of study & continuous assessment
Our courses are specifically designed for study by the distance learning method. It is a simple and very flexible way to learn, and consists of studying a self-contained unit and then submitting an assignment which demonstrates knowledge of the content. As the course progresses, your knowledge base grows and each successive unit assumes an understanding and knowledge of those already passed.
It is a logical process of continuous assessment, and the marks awarded to each unit by your tutor are totaled to give a grade at the end. There is no final exam, which is another huge advantage over more traditional study methods, and any units or modules that are poorly understood are simply retaken and remarked.
Year round enrolment
You can enrol on a course of study with distance learning plus at anytime of the day or night and at any point in the year! There are no "terms" (or semesters, for our American cousins), adding to the unique flexibility of distance learning.
Provided you have Internet access you can study literally anywhere, in any time zone, to suit your circumstances, working life or family responsibilities. You could conceivably complete and submit assignments via laptop or tablet on a beach in the South Pacific!
