Distance Learning - Home Study Steps

Studying the way that suits you best

Distance Learning is studying at home or at work, in a way and at a place which suits you best. The benefits of home study have quickly been proved over many years as a uniquely flexible approach to enhancing your career prospects and developing your own personal skill.
  • Your studies can be combined with existing home or work commitments with minimal disruption to your normal routine.
  • Your studies begin at the time of year which suits you best.
  • You progress through the course at whatever pace is right for you.
  • You are supported in your studies on an individual basis by your personal tutor.
  • If you would like to see a sample of our courses please ask our advice team to arrange this. This sample will allow you to study a lesson, even contacting a tutor if you wish. Call today on 0800 028 1404 or 0141 248 5200.


 
Results have proven that Distance Learning is a particularly effective method of gaining skills and qualifications for those people who cannot commit to a prescribed timetable. With almost three decades of experience, IDEAL Schools’ unique materials and methods will help you achieve aims and objectives that may otherwise be out of reach.
