At Distance Learning Centre we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and students as we face up to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consequently, all of our staff are now working remotely from home, and it is business-as-usual as far as enrolments and tutor-support are concerned. Courses accessed via our online portal will be available as usual and we will, of course, be keeping abreast of the latest government recommendations with regard to the delivery of physical materials.

Any student who is completing a Teaching Assistant or Child Care Course, which requires a suitable placement in a work-place environment can contact us to arrange an extension to their support which will cover the duration of School and Nursery closures.

Hard-copy materials are still being dispatched as normal through various courier and delivery services. We continue to use a next working day service for the majority of our course materials. Couriers are not guaranteeing a next day service although most are still arriving in that timeframe.  

Some courses which had previously been available as a choice of either Online or paper-based may now only be available as Online, while the courses which would usually give Online access as well as supplying a hard copy of the course notes will continue as normal with the hard copy materials being dispatched once a week.

Rest assured, we at Distance Learning Centre will follow all government recommendations and guidelines to the letter to protect our staff, students and their families from this insidious virus.
