Home Learning


Live Online Timetables 1

As well as locally based teaching sessions we also offer the following home learning options

Individual tutorials

Our home learning package gives you access to our online support materials – which guide you through the course. Our last CIPS inspection described these materials ‘excellent resources’. Clients supplement the materials with tutorials to build a structured individual programme of support with a personal tutor.

The tutorials take you through the course at a time convenient for you. You can opt for two one hour tutorials per module or more. The most popular option is four hours support per module – which provides a similar structure to the course as the class sessions.

Whatever package is chosen unlimited email and telephone contact with the tutor is also provided – this is aside from the tutorials.

Videoconference classes

We run live weekday 6.30 – 8.30 videoconference classes every week for the Advanced Certificate, Level 4 Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Professional Diploma. You can log into the sessions wherever you are!

Video sessions are combined with locally based face –to- face workshops.

The videoconference classes provide the same additional support and work just the same as the face to face ones – except you don't have to battle your way to one of our study centres after work ! Please see the Advanced Certificate, Level 4 Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Professional Diploma. sections of this website for details.
