“PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by MohammadLindsey78 (1 review written)

I found it very difficult to find balanced reviews about My Distance Learning College before I started the course, nevertheless I went ahead and paid my £350+ for the Supporting Teaching and Learning Level 3 ncfe certificate course feeling optimistic. I found the course challenging, but managed to complete it well within the year timeframe - probably because I had previously completed the Level 2 course via my local adult education centre so had plenty of background knowledge. Once I had… Read Full Review

“This online college does not issue qualifications”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by CharlieNichols309 (1 review written)

I am currently on my third course with this college. Before, I would have given them 5 out of 5. But I have just found out that actually all of their courses are not qualifications. All they are are achievements which look good but don't actually amount to anything. I found a blog forum on their site that loads of people have found out the same thing and people are not very happy about it. I asked for the online version as it's always been easier for me so apparently I am not entitled for a… Read Full Review

“Community mental health course”

Written on: 25/07/2014

I only registered on 3/7/14. Today is 25/7/14. I've completed all six of my assignments for my 12 month course.......this is great. All I need to do now is upload the assignments as they have been marked and feedback has been recieved. This is done within 10 days I believe. The only problem I found is you can only submit one assignment at a time which means you need to keep going on there to upload it. Its very user friendly, simple, and in short bitesize chunks so you are not over loaded with… Read Full Review

Thank you for posting your comments. feedback from our students is always very welcome. We are glad that you enjoyed your Community mental health course. Whilst tutor feedback is usually sent within 10 working days we do advise that between July and September this may take a little longer due to annual leave. We always aim for feedback to be sent as soon as possible. Assignments are submitted one at a time so that students can receive feedback on each assignment before proceeding to the next one.

“Teaching Assistant Course Feedback”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Gibsongc124 (1 review written)

Well, I never thought I would complete an on-line course within 9 weeks having been given 12 months to actually complete the course. It helped that I had sheer determination to complete the course within a short space of time. From the start the college were fantastic with accessing my application to logging me on to the course. I telephoned the admn staff a couple of times and they were veery helpful and friendly. Equally, if I had a query regarding the course the tutors were quick to… Read Full Review

“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

Thank you for your review.

Our students are able to access their learning 24/7 and submit questions to their tutors through the student portal at anytime. You are able to contact our student support advisers over the telephone during office hours for any enquiries in relation to accessing your course materials.

Our courses cover a wide range of subjects and are suitable for many learning requirements from hobby/enthusiasts through to professionals looking for continual professional development.

I have taken on board your comments in relation to a grading system and it is something that will be discussed when reviewing our provision in future.

It is very satisfying to read that you are happy with your course and I would like to congratulate you on achieving your learning goal.

Thank you for your recommendation.

“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.
