“Brilliant!!”

Written on: 25/04/2017 by Edwards448 (1 review written)

Online Courses are very easy to do as they are multiple choice questions which I find helps you learn quicker and make sense of it. You have notes to read before taking the test, now this can be quite intense but again with the help of diagrams and not too much jargon you find the notes are not mind boggling. Also a handy tip for others - if you happen to fail some of the questions in your test, leave it a day or 2, then go into the notes, scroll to the bottom if the page and select take test… Read Full Review

I am thinking of enrolling in this course through the Groupon voucher.
I would really like to be able to see a sample of what the course layout is.
Is it all text or also videos?
Are there any illustrations with the text?
Are the unusual wording terms clearly explained?
Is it true that at the end of the course there is an option to upgrade to the endorsed ABC certificate by paying a little extra (would you know what the fee is?)?
I would really appreciate it if you could respond and especially if you could send screenshots of the course layout so that i could get a sample.
Many thanks

I would love to see a sample of this course please if you have since i am thinking of taking it.
Are the wording terms hard to understand?
Is it all text based or are there also illustrations and videos?
Is it true that after taking the regular course bought through the Groupon voucher, there is an option to upgrade to an accredited version for an extra cost?, would you remember what the cost is?
Have you had any iddues where the online academies have not responded to your emails since there are a few bad reviews regarding the course not working and not getting responses which is making me a bit nervous.
Many thanks

“Teaching Assistant Diploma”

Written on: 26/02/2017 by Aleahb138 (1 review written)

So happy and satisfied as Mom to be able to do something for me. Really flexible and lovely course. Enjoyed the content only found some repetitions in some modules. Also some of the examples for the Curriculum were given for Wales and I need more information for England, as it was written that it could be slightly different. Otherwise very pleased with my tutor who gave me directions for the few questions I had to resubmit in order to pass the final exam. Great value for money, too!… Read Full Review

How much was the extra cost to upgrade to the full certificate? By full certificate do you mean to upgrade to the accredited certificate?
Is it an option to upgrade even when you buy the Groupon voucher?
Many thanks

Have had the exactly the same problem and a poor response from Groupon too. Will be informing the Ombudsman with my experience and hopefully we can get this stopped! Groupon said no one else had complained about Online Academies to them so please contact them too!
The more of us that compalin the more chance we have of stopping this happening!

Hi Can I suggest that you contact ABCawards.co.uk they are the people who endorse these courses. I had contacted online Academies loads of times but no reply. Suddenly, after contacting ABC, I have replies from Online Academies claiming they never received my emails. 2 days later though they still haven't answered the original query with the course.
The more we complain the more chance we have of getting a better service or stopping a poor one!

“Good for further learning”

Written on: 17/11/2016

I enjoyed the course I was learning and by doing the course I was interested in, gave me more insight and more knowledge. I like the fact you can do this at your own pace with no pressure. Making notes of what you have learned helped me in passing the end exam. The papers gave you all the information you need to do the course. I will be doing another course soon, now I know what is involved I can make improvements in the way I learned with the first. I would definitely recommend if anyone wants… Read Full Review

“Nobody ever emails you back! ”

Written on: 15/11/2016 by Meesh0286 (1 review written)

The course was ok. The material was not comprehensive at all and if I had not had so much prior experience there is no way I would have passed the final. Saying that I did pass the final with a distinction. I order my certificate and realise the name is wrong and email them immediately, the certificate STILL arrives with the wrong name so I email again. No response. I have now sent 7 emails and no response and no other way to contact them. Pretty much I've spent a year of my life working for a… Read Full Review

“brilliant learning process”

Written on: 13/11/2016 by iyCorbett278 (1 review written)

This course provided all the challenges I needed to help me learn. It provoked wider reading, soul searching ideologies, complimented my beliefs and furthered my understanding. I work with children with severe learning and cognitive disabilities, and I know that the learning that I have achieved via Online Academies will help me to understand and work better, and prove just as much of a reward to my 'client base' as it does to me.
