About Us

Distance Learning Courses Limited (t/a Distance Learning Centre) is a leading online course developer and provider of home study and open learning courses. As well as developing our own course materials, we are also agents for many other top distance learning providers. We currently offer over 250 distance learning courses through the Distance Learning Centre website, and we are also an authorised partner for distributing CIW Self Study Kits

Distance Learning Courses is proud to be a family business. I am Michael Verinder, the owner and managing director of Distance Learning Courses Limited. Alongside myself is Joanne, our Accounts Manager and an Internal Verifier for Open Awards quality endorsed certificates and qualifications, and Lindsay our Office Manager. I have developed and delivered distance learning courses for over 20 years. My involvement in this area started after my Dad, Dave developed our first Webmaster Course back in 1993. Dave also still works for us as a course developer and tutor.

Since forming the company, we have gone from strength to strength, and we continue to develop innovative course materials. We developed the Distance Learning Centre website as a platform to offer a wide range of distance learning and online courses. Today our web design and programming courses remain a popular choice, but equally, we offer a range of courses specific to job roles such as teaching assistant, child care or health care practitioner that lead to full Ofqual Regulated RQF qualifications, and GCSE, IGCSE and A Level Courses which are still massively important for many job roles and further education applications.

Through our Distance Learning Centre website we have supplied direct to companies and company employees from many leading international organisations such as:

  • The NHS
  • The Department for Work & Pensions (DWP)
  • The Armed Forces
  • Job Centre Plus
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Ford Motor Company
  • The Rugby Players Association
  • Barclays Bank
  • St Loye's Foundation
  • The United Nations
  • European Union (EU)
  • BT
  • Royal Mail
