The benefits of distance learning qualifications

Distance learning, also referred to as e-learning, allows you to complete an online course without the need for regular face-to-face contact with your tutor. This approach is popular for many who already have a busy work schedule and benefit from working towards completion within their own time.

With this route, there is no need to attend classrooms in person. Learners are able to pick up where they left off at any time, as long as they have an internet connection.

In recent months, remote learning has become an even more popular approach. It has allowed learners to gain qualifications from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Along with this, it also provides many more benefits.

Work around your busy schedule

Many people are put off the idea of upskilling when they already have a full time job and further responsibilities at home. The idea of having to find the time for another set schedule, especially if your existing responsibilities are always changing, can prevent learners from wanting to complete a course. Being able to decide when to research your topic and complete units will mean you don’t need to worry about not being able to attend lessons.

Support from a dedicated tutor

Pursuing a distance learning course through The B2W Group will also mean you will receive dedicated support from a personal tutor. They will be available to aid you throughout your course and provide feedback to improve your work. Our tutors will ensure that you are getting the most out of your qualification and learning new knowledge and skills.

“The course is great learning. It’s especially valuable to have a tutor when you need it. They give you feedback on your work, which you wouldn’t get from just doing a standard online course.” – Victoria Bond, Level 2 Digital Promotion for Business

Access to online resources

Our distance learning courses will provide you with access to our online learning platform. This will be full of useful resources which will guide you through your units.

“I enjoyed researching the topics and using the online materials that were provided to aid with the course. I was able to read and understand things better as the course went into depth for each of the topics.” – Sinead Jackson, Children & Young People’s Mental Health.

Access to online masterclasses

During the start of your course, you will attend live masterclasses delivered online by an industry-specialist tutor. This will give you a head start and the opportunity to ask any questions before you continue on the course. After the masterclasses, you will continue to complete the course using the online learning platform in your own time.

Gain a qualification

After course completion, you will gain a certificate which you will be able to use to prove your competence to employers. This will be a great addition to your CV and online profiles. 

Progress in the workplace

Whether it is more responsibilities, a higher role, or a pay rise, our distance learning courses can help you progress in your existing role with a recognised qualification. Having more knowledge will increase your productivity and build the confidence to accept new and challenging roles. It will also demonstrate to your manager or employer that you’re committed to continued professional development.
