“CIW + Distance Learning Centre = First Class”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by AlexC8489 (1 review written)

I studied the CIW Web Foundations Associate course via Distance Learning Centre UK and could not recommend this course more. Anyone who is looking into Computing, IT, Networks, Software etc. is mad if they don't have CIW on their shortlist of courses. It has given me a brilliant foundation for whatever I want to do next and in so many fields of work. It will really fill you with the confidence you need, which is very important, especially in a subject as intricate as this. I found it easy to… Read Full Review

I made an excellent decision in studying the garden design course. The course has given me all I expected from it and much more. It has now opened many doors in garden design, for my future career. The tutor was excellent and the feedback on my assignments was very helpful. The course has given me a good insight into garden design and my future is now looking very good within garden design. I enjoyed every aspect of the course from designing ponds to designing areas for children to play and… Read Full Review

“Great tutor”

Written on: 04/09/2014 by PaulaMcPherson (1 review written)

The hardware for the course webdesign was American. It is not very user-friendly but it worked ok. It has a very annoying jingle so I could not listen to music from my computer because I had the sound switched off. That was the bad part. The good part was the service of the tutor. Nine out of 10 times he would answer to questions on the same day. He would not give the answers but point me in the right direction. He was very patient and answer even the most basic questions that I should not… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/09/2014 by NevaehBlack179 (1 review written)

Doing my course was the best decision I could have made, I never thought I would be going to university and it re-ignited my love for studying. The course was excellent, the tutors were excellent, giving good feedback and the turnaround for assignments was normally less than a week. I couldn't praise them enough!!… Read Full Review

“web master course DLC”

Written on: 07/01/2014

I completed the Webmaster course from the Distance Learning Centre and found it very enjoyable. It teaches you the basics of html , CSS and JavaScript on a DVD and gives you basic exercises to complete. The final exercise was to complete a whole website that I found excellent for putting into practice everything I had learnt. The support staff were excellent and replied promptly to any queries I had. The course was great value for money but I do suggest you wait for the course to be updated… Read Full Review

“Web Design Training with the Distance Learning Centre”

Written on: 09/12/2013

I have recently completed both the Webmaster and Webmaestro courses from the Web Design Training Bundle at the Distance Learning Centre and have been thoroughly impressed by the service received from beginning to end. I would wholeheartedly recommend this package to anyone else with limited, or even, no prior knowledge of HTML, JavaScript or CSS who would like to learn the 'nuts & bolts' of web site design, as well as (not instead of)learning how to use web design software to produce sites… Read Full Review

“Excellent, helpful and great value for money.”

Written on: 03/06/2013 by DerwentWeb (1 review written)

I recently completed the WebMaster and WebMaestro course with the Distance Learning Centre which has helped develop my skills in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to a level where I have even amazed myself. Since completing the course, I have set up my own web design business. I started the course with a small understanding in HTML and CSS but after the first hour I realised there was a lot more to learn which both courses taught me. When ever I became stuck, the tech support was always on hand to help… Read Full Review

“Fantastic.”

Written on: 23/08/2012 by Mrsspuddy (1 review written)

I highly recommend these home based courses, I completed the FASD course, the pack was sent promptly after payment, the information in the pack was fantastic, easy to read and understand, the course content was very informative, gave a great insight into the condition. The pack provided lots of information for the questions, the activities were good as you had to "find" some of the information, which was good as it certainly put the awareness of the condition into some perspective. The tutor… Read Full Review

“Unbeatable price and a Recognised qualification”

Written on: 04/03/2012

Distance Learning Centre was my first home learning experience. I was so happy with the course format and support that I came back for a second. I am now in the process of purchasing a 3rd course! Courses are broken down into modules, each with quiz and assignments to test what you've learned. The tutor always replied to my email within 24 hours. What can I say about the price?unbeatable! I have browsed many centres offering similar services but I must admit DLC has by far appealed to me the… Read Full Review

I would like to thank all the team at the Distance Learning College for their support whilst completing the Webm@ster Course. The course provided me with further knowledge on HTML and CSS. I also had a brief but clear view of JavaScript. I would recommend the course to anyone looking for an insight to webpages and the internet as a whole.

I absolutely loved doing my English course with distance-learning-centre.co.uk I had a fanstic tutor called Jill, who was a fully qualified teacher. She was constantly checking up on me, we'd speak 2 or 3 times a month about the work to make sure I knew what I was doing so that way I could get maximum grade and pass first time round, which I felt was a fantastic service. It help me finally achieve my English GCSE and beat my dyslexia.I'm absolutely chuffed and can finally go University, plus… Read Full Review

“Wonderful Teaching Assistant Course”

Written on: 19/08/2011 by foziebear (1 review written)

I had been looking at becoming a teaching assistant for some time and deciding to look in to Distance Learning as I was already in part time employment and simply didn’t have the time to attend college with my other family commitments. After looking at numerous companies I settled on Distance Learning Centre and now I have my QCF Level 3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Qualification!! (Watch out for some other companies courses which do not lead to a qualification!) I had to… Read Full Review

I am interested in this course - how long did it take you? What course materials did you get as part of the package? Did you have to buy books as well? How much did they cost? How many assignement did you have to do? and additional observations in School?
Any help would be really great :)

Hi Foziebear again - thanks for your reply. I just wanted to check on something, I am slightly worried about something, could you help me clear something up? You say that it has lead to you having a QCF qualification and that there are some companies that don't lead to a qualification. When you received your paperwork at the end does it state the QAN on there? How can you prove to other people that you have a recognised QUALIFICATION? thanks :)

It is self study but took about 10 months what with the kids and all!!

Its a course folder that you receive which has the instructions to follow and I didn't buy any extra books. It was about £400 but you would need to check on the price. I think there was about 12 assignments based on work from the placement. It is quite hard work so I would only commit if you have the time & energy! Good Luck :0)
