“SUPERB COLLEGE”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by RitaChumber (1 review written)

Having completed 4 courses with the college, from the moment of ordering my course all information regarding the subject was given. You can do it online or the paper version. I had chosen the paper version which comes in a well presented folder and came the next day ! The prices of the courses were Ace also having the option to pay monthly and not forgetting the free gifts they offer sometimes too. Good precise questions, tutor support readily available, marked quickly and having the option to… Read Full Review

“Great course!”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by DaniellaCarver223 (1 review written)

My expectation about this course(CBT)was completely met as I totally enjoyed spending some time of my evenings reading the course materials online and attempting the assignments. I was particularly motivated by my tutors feedback and the speed it took to mark my assignments from beginning to the end of my course. I look forward to receive my certificate which I am sure will be worth it all! The time taken to enhance my knowledge is being transfered to my current job which is great. I now look… Read Full Review

Thank you for your feedback.

As stated in our terms and conditions many of our courses are accredited by national Awarding Organisations, including (but not limited to) CACHE, Focus Awards, FAA, VTCT and NCFE. Due to changes in certification processes, it may occasionally be necessary to substitute an Awarding Organisation for another of similar or superior status. Such substituted accreditation will always be from an Ofqual-regulated provider. We reserve the right to do so according to operational requirements, without individual notification.

“Access 24/7 Gain the Qualification you desire.”

Written on: 20/06/2014

My Distance Learning College was a excellent source for gaining a qualification. You have access to the website anytime in the day or night. The Tutors gave excellent support and were there anytime you needed them. You could either get in contact via online or speak directly on the telephone. Most certainly recommended for working professionals who want to progress their profession further and are unable to study full time due to daily commitments. It is great for individuals also who are… Read Full Review

“Not the course I bought - trading standards here I come..”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by parityssister (1 review written)

Having studied 2 level 3 diploma's with NCFE accreditation through NCC I applied and purchased the NCFE accredited level 4 leadership and management in care course. When the materials arrived from mydistancelearning college I immediately phoned NCC to find out why. They advised me that they were sister colleges and therefore advertised courses for each other. All sounded ok and because of the positive way NCC dealt with my previous courses I decided to continue. However, a few months down the… Read Full Review

“Very basic course - only suitable for interest not CPD”

Written on: 18/06/2014

Thought forensic science course sounded very interesting so through groupon applied. Only paid for electronic version of notes, which you cant copy or print. Notes had many spelling errors which I thought was very inappropriate for a course! I only had 3 assignments to complete and they were multiple choice questions. If you chose you wouldn't even need to read the course notes to submit the assignments. You would get an email saying they would be marked within 10 days - however they were… Read Full Review

Thank you for your review of the Forensic Science Course.

The course you purchased is non-accredited therefore is ideal for personal fulfilment, to increase knowledge for enjoyment or hobby purposes, and to gain insights into new subjects. This is clearly explained on our website.

The course is designed to be accessible for students who want to learn more about Forensic Science without the need to complete assignments.

Our course materials are reviewed regularly and I can assure that given your comments we will check this course for any issues. The online course that you purchased allows you access to the course materials through our student portal, the documents are protected, so you would be unable to print these. However, we do offer printed course pack upgrades should our students request this for an additional fee.

We are working constantly on our Student Portal and will take your comments on board for further evaluation.

“Great Course well worth it. ”

Written on: 15/06/2014 by rebleajo (1 review written)

I did the health and social care course, this was very interesting and informative. The staff are a great help when needed and quick to respond. Great feedback given at the end of each unit motivating you to continue. I enjoyed all aspects of this course it went into a lot of detail regarding children, young people and adults, I didn't realise how deep health and social went. I found the way the course is run to be beneficial to me as I could work at my own pace and produce work in my own time… Read Full Review

Thank you for your review of the Health and Social Care Course.

It is really encouraging to hear that you have enjoyed the course so much that you have now enrolled on another with us. Distance learning can sometimes be daunting for people who haven't experienced this before, so your review will hopefully give confidence to others who might be considering this.

Thank you for your recommendations.

I have enrolled into a Level 3 Teaching Assistant course it clearly stated NCFE accredited diploma. Now they have changed they "accreditation". There was an option to still choose NCFE certificate which I did but when I have contacted them they say I haven`t done it. I have already contacted Trading Standards they say they have breached the contract. Now I just want my money back. Avoid it at any cost!… Read Full Review

I am sorry you feel the change of awarding body has impacted on you negatively.

We have recently been forced to make a change of the Awarding Body who accredit our courses due to NCFE removing endorsement for the majority of their IIQ courses. We were given very little notice of this change and after appealing to NCFE we were permitted to register students who notified us, on the IIQ course. This period has now ended and we are unable to register any more learners with NCFE.

MyDistance Learning College contacted all their learners through the student portal via an announcement that was available throughout May 2014, giving the instructions on how to select the NCFE accreditation and the reason for the change.

We now work with Focus Awards to accredit our courses, the course hasn't changed and the level of accreditation is not affected. Focus Awards are a national awarding body who are regulated by Ofqual in the same way as NCFE.

I have selected ncfe in may after the announcement but now I was told I didn't and won't get the certificate. I did not pay for focus whatever award. I don't want it. Just my money back.

But Focus Awards is owned by the same person who owns My Distance Learning isnt it ? Is that even allowed ?? Conflict of interests in my mind. How can you accredit your own courses ? Something isnt right there.

The same has happened to me , except one of my courses i had completed BEFORE the changes , after many excuses and emails to say my certificate was on its way i contacted NCFE , only to find out i had never been registered in first place , so the excuse with my 2nd course that i never ticked the box which of course i did is invalied as NCFE have no record of me . It is misrepresentation and have now contacted a solicitor as MDL are blaming everyone except themselves and a focus award is worthless to many of us as a qualification for job purposes .

I am currently working my way through the assignment based Teaching Assistant course on-line. The course notes are very informative and I have been impressed with the prompt feedback from the course tutors. All of my assignments have been marked and feedback received well within the 10 day period. This has meant I can work my way through the course at the speed required for me to finish it before the next academic year begins. Completing this course on-line has given me the flexibility I… Read Full Review

“Higher Level Teaching Assistant”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by oiGrantham178 (1 review written)

I was really please to get this course reduced by purchasing a 'Groupon' voucher and since starting the course have secured a job as a HLTA. The on line submission of assignments and receiving feedback was very easy to use. I think either working or volunteering within a school will help to complete assignments although not essential to complete the course. I have found it very useful to consolidate my knowledge and experience and gained a qualification in the process… Read Full Review
