Online Courses

Our fantastic range of free online courses offers independent learners the chance to study remotely in their own time with industry specific assessor hours allocated to support them throughout the qualification.

Whether employed or seeking employment, our online courses enhance your skills and continue your professional development.

It is expected that each online learning programme can take between 6 and 12 weeks to complete depending on the content.

No fees or deposits are required to sign up to online courses and initial interview can be conducted over phone or video call.

Online Course Update – Temporary Pause 

Due to the phenomenal number of applications we have received for our online courses, we are popping the provision on hold to allow us to process the applications we currently have before starting the next cohort.

We are reviewing our capacity at the end of this month and will be releasing the application date for the next cohort on the 1st May 2020, please check back then for more details.

Enrolment for Food Safety in Catering and Construction & Building will be delayed until the College resumes normal business hours due to these courses requiring exam assessment.

We will also be releasing information through our social media channels. If you are not following us already, please head to our pages and give us a like in order to receive the updates. Alternatively, please feel free to contact us via email if you have any queries in the meantime.
