I started my course a couple of years ago now. It took me a year to complete as I was working full time as well. I could do my course whenever I had the time and there was no rush to finish the assognments. I done so much better than I thought I would I got an A two Bs and a C. The course also made me think about my career and helped me to decide on what I really want to do and that's to become a counsellor. Since finishing my course I have enrolled in a diploma in counselling course and should be finished next year. I would recommend this course to anyone. The tutor was great an always there to answer any questions. All in all 10/10.
after studying two courses with home learning college, i cannot praise them enough for the support and materials they give to you. your tutor is always there to help out with any queries or problems and is prompt in doing so.
the course materials are of excellent detail and i found it easy to do my course with the help of these.
am hoping to do another course in the new year in counselling and i know it will be of as good a quality, and the support will be the same.
would recommend this to anyone, infact have recommended this college to quite a few of my work colleagues.
The course material arrived quickly and was simple and easy to use. The course material was interesting and my personal tutor was always there to help. I was working full time and found the course was easy to fit in with my busy lifestyle.
I studied lifecoaching with Home Learning because it was very flexible. I was able to do the course around my own working and personal life. The feedback from the tutor was great he was always there at the end of the internet. Iam starting up my new business and I achieved this with amazing grades.
Theres pluses and minuses but i think that the minuses are to big...
Pluses are that there really helpfull tuttors and never had a problem with the site.
Minuses are that they tell u that all u need to pass the tests are the books they provide but in fact u will need more sources if u really want to pass the test:just an example is that i learned a few things from the simulation test ive done so far,which i shouldve know from the books.Another big minus is that they never tell you when u enroll that compTIA A+ have changed the way they deal with the diplomas:basicaly the diplomas are only valid for 3years,and than u will have to take the test again in order to have it valid.of course there are few ways of getting around and maintaining your diploma valid but in my opinion i shouldve been informed.As for as i was concern i was taking on a course to change my career,
To conclude,i guess u cant really find any better somewhere else,cos in the end they all try to sell their products and dont really care about costumers.I can tell that my cousin had similar problem when she done a course with one of these home leargning colleges.My adivice would be to ask as many question as you need before enroling and dont be pressured by their seller who they will definitly say that "this is one of the last spots left sir for now and if u choose not to enroll now u might not get a change when u call later"...can u imagine? :))))

I would recommend HLC for anyone wishing to take a home study course. The material is first rate, the tutors are very knowledgable and the on-line community is very usable. You can study at your own pace and the pricing is a bargain for what you receive.
Home Learning College is a great place to gain new knowledge and skills at home in appropriate for each rate.I have done Early learning and child care course which supposed to take 2 years but with my determination, concentration and hard work i managed to finish it in 18 months. I had tutor who was available for me at any time when i needed her and she was extremely helpful. My tutor has always supported me and give advice as well as in case of problems provide guidance how to solve it. I would recommend HLC to anyone who wants to get new qualifications and get their dream job. I did it and I believe that thanks to the positive attitude and hard work, you too will also succeed.
Supportive teachers, helpful, always marked my assignments very promptly and answered any questions I had through out my 2 years of studies at HLC. As a proof stand my ICB Level III Diploma in Payroll Management - Merit and ICB Level II Certificate in Computerised Bookkeeping - Distinction!
As a busy and working mum I found the courses work were easy to follow and very thorough therefore I would totally recommend the HLC to anyone thinking of studying at home.
i would suggest home learning to any one. with wonderful people that are understanding and available when ever you need. home learning really is the way to go .you can call on someone any time of day.there never to busy to help you what ever your need mite be i wouldnt have gone any were else .they really helped me grow confidence and achieve a real stepping stone in life .thats why you should pick home learning too .
The VLC at Home Learning College is like having a college or school right there in your living room, or better still, where ever you are in the world! The accessability of the online services are second to none, the course materials are clear and easy to follow, and if you ever get stuck there is always a tutor close to hand to answer any and all queries you may have. A perfect and very convenient way of studying whether you work full time, part time or how ever little spare time you may have, the courses are built around you and your hectic lives so you can work at your own pace which makes the path to furthering your education even more appealing and successful :)
There is so much to say regarding Home Learning college! I am recommending it to all my friends, in fact one of them has joined because of my recommendation!
The material is very easy to understand and the tutors are always there, ready to help.
I was very impressed with the fact that there really are not any hidden fees.
II completed my studies in under 6 months and got my dream job straight after!
I would do it all over again!
I was working in childcare and getting fed up so I contacted home learning college and had someone come out to discuss my options and I started a bookkeeping course. It was a 2 year course and I completed it within 11 months. I had full support form the tutor and other staff 24 7. Once I finished my course I set up my own business and it has been running for nearly 2 years and I am very busy but I work around my family so when my children go to bed I work for a few hours or when my eldest is at school. I would recommend home learning college to anyone it was the best thing I did for me and my family. I now spend time with my family instead of working 5 days a week and 9 hours a day I only do one full day a week out and the rest at home. Thank you to Home Learning College. :)
I started a Dreamweaver CS3 Web Design course after I retired as it was something I always wanted to do, but could never find the time while working.
I was able to complete the course in my own time, with no pressure, and was also able to extend the time limit. Advice was available if I needed it, although I always wanted to solve any problems myself.
My tutor, David was very helpful and I especially benefited from the Webinairs, even though they were a bit frustrating at times.
I would thoroughly recommend undertaking a course with the Home Learning College, in fact I am now undertaking a Flash CS5 course. This has been delayed as I have a client who is expanding her business and wants her DIY site updated with a professional web site.
The Home Learning College was the perfect solution to somebody in my position.

It took me the best part of 2 years to complete the Network+ course
with the help of a very good tutor. I found that any problems or questions I had concerning the course were answered very quickly and very thoroughly. The only little niggle I had with the course was that the assessment questions were based on server 2003, but the exam questions were based on server 2010. Overall a good experiance which I would recommend to anyone wanting a career in IT.
I am so much excited having studied with home learning college. It gave me the time to study at my own pace having three children to care for. The tutor support was second to none. Would highly recommend home learning to anyone.
I first did a Computerised Bookkeeping course with the Home Learning College a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.
So when i needed to get more qualified i looked no further than the Home College to help me.The tutors are great and very helpful and put no pressure on you and let you learn in your own time.
I am half way through a difficult course but the work books are very clear and the online classroom sessions are very useful. Hopefully as i progress in my career and need any more help, i would certainly use the Home Learning College again.
Hi my name is Henrique, my enrolment number is CB1105882. I took the course of CIW Web Design Specialist. Is a fantastic course and all the supporting material created by the Home Learning College makes it very appealing and easy to accomplish. The fact that we have a teacher to monitor all the way and we can take questions at any time makes learning much easier. The whole system set up by the Home Learning College was thinking of the students and that makes the experience of studying in the Home Learning College something very satisfying.
When I signed up for the Payroll course I had not studied since leaving school and as I was 50 years old that was quite a while ago. I have only good things to say about Home Learning, the support given by email, telephone and web site were excellent. I enjoyed my course immensely and found the work taxing but not too difficult to get my head around. I am happy to report I passed my course with a merit and am very proud of my achievement.

I am really happy of the Travel and Tourism course I am attending : The course is very professional and very flexible in the same time. The books I read are a very good base to be aware of tourism and is very up to date. I also enjoy doing research for the Assessments and writing essays. It's not boring at all, I learn a lot of things which are not in the books, both are complementary. I can also practice my English writing because it's not my native language. I do all the research on Internet. The tutor is very professional and friendly even if I never have met him. The results until now are also rewarding.
I have just compleated a course in payroll management and are also doing 2 other courses with the home learning collage and my experience with them so far has been really good. When i first enquired about the course on their website they were quick to responsed to my enquiry and were really help and informitive about the courses and helped me pick the right courses for me also the tutors have been really nice and very helpful and the website is very easy to use i would recomend them to anyone who is wanting to do a course at home.
Home Learning College supply all necessary books and support and its only up to student how and when he will learn. Great way for self motivated person to learn new skills and improve qualifications for a better future.( 5121061665)
I completed the SCJP course and exam just before Christmas 2011. I had been studying for about a year and a half with the home learning college and was very impressed with the course. The material was very useful and detailed coupled with the online vlc portal made it really easy to revise and study. The fact it was all well broken down into chapters motivated me to study in smaller chunks - this definitely helped as I completed the course while working full time.
You are assigned a tutor straight away, who was always friendly and helpful whenever I needed assistance. I would recommend the home learning college to all and I'm very happy I took on the course.
Good luck to all those out there studying!
In the begining, I was in little doubt about the quality and rating to the diplomas and sertificates gained trough home learning. But I must say, this really was a better way for me to learn a new things. And I learned a lot, so absolutely no regrets. The learning process was intresting and easy to understand. And you can always contact your tutor if you need any assistance.
I would recommend to anyone- choose your course and go for it, new skills is never a bad thing isnt it?
Ive done 2 courses on home learning and both times I had no problems.
The forum is an excellent place to read up and find out knowledge and help and the tutors are always on hand to help you out if you get stuck.
My assignments were always marked quickly and came back with helpful comments and advice!
I'm hoping to study again with them
I really enjoyed studying with the home learning college. I found the enrolment easy and enjoyed exploring the virtual learning community. I found the forums really helpful as I was able to speak to other students and ask for help as well as share tips. My tutor was really helpful - always replied to my emails in a few days with answers that resolved my questions. I found the VLC the most useful tool in my studies. Everything was there and it was easy to find.
The only issue I had was that some information was not explained thoroughly and I missed it. This could have been my fault for not looking for it, but I didn't know it was there in the first place. However, it sorted itself out and I had no other problems.

I studied a CIW Internet Web Design Foundations, through the Home Learning College, passing my final exam earlier this year.
I found the HLC to be an excellent provider for courses studied from home, at your own pace. Support from Tutors is excellent, staff are always able to respond to any queries quickly and the quality of materials used for studying is very good too.
There is the opportunity to converse with other students by posting in the forums on the student portal, and in my course the learning was enhanced most of all by the webinars that were provided by my tutor on a weekly basis.
Tutor support is available for 2 years and they also help you prepare for the final exam in the best possible way. Recommend committing to 10 hours study as a minimum (more if possible).
Flexible, affordable payment plans with a low interest are available.
The only thing I would have liked to have had was assistance/support in finding employment at the end of my course. Apart from that, I would happily use the Home Learning College again for any future study.
If you're looking for a new challenge or to update your skills or change careers, I highly recommend HLC.
I was apprehensive at first when all the books arrived, but they are set out really clearly, and your tutor is always available if you have any queries. Loads of helpful information on the website and great to be able to chat with other students who were experiencing the same highs and lows as me.
Home learning college is fantastic. I find it so hard to study and take in what I need to if I'm not be in a "classroom environment". The tutor support is good I got loss of tips and websites to help me. The workshops are essential I find it easier once I have done The tasks on a lot PC. I would regiment home learning college to anyone I thought I would not be able to study from home but the amount of help,support And endless information it was a doddle. I managed financially too I got to loan the money and pay back every month that was a massive help with out that I would not have done this coarse. I thank home learning college for oppertunity to get my qualifacation I know I've yet to do the exam but I feel I'm ready, and I know I'll do well.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, user friendly online system meant I could study at my own pace and choose my own time. Tutors only an email or phone call away and a fab online community with assistance at all levels. Thanks Home LEarning College for a wonderful experience as well as the qualifications!
The reading material was set out in manageable chunks allowing you to work logically through the software. The coursework helps prepare you for the exam by allowing you to create an end product with the software. Tutor support was good and there if you need it. you get 2 years to complete the course which is plenty of time to work through it all.

I decided to enrol with the home learning college as i work shifts thus making it difficult to attend night classes at college. When you become a member of the college you are incredibly supported by your tutors and having access to the online community and educational tools which aids the learning environment. Certainly for me home learning has suited my needs and I am very close to attaining my Comptia A+ and realising my ultimate dream of working within an 'IT' environment. I would highly recommend the home learning college for anyone who works unsociable hours or who has heavy work or family commitments but who ultimately wishes to change their career path.
I have a busy life, HLC had the flexiblity which ment I could do my assignment the time it suits me. When ever I found my assignment difficult It was easy to get in touch with the tutor and they were very helpful. The course was very expensive that was the only downside towards it ,other wise I loved studying with HLC.
I looked about to see what course a wanted, then looked at what each company offered within the price range I was looking at, I then looked at what materials they offered as some gave you nothing and some offered the world but then the support and all the hidden extras kicked in and would have cost nearly double, I then realised that hlc had an extensive web site and forum based chat rooms where you can ask all sorts of people And acces your course from anywhere without having to carry your books everywhere. I am over the moon with all aspects of the course and would never look back.
I personally think that the courses that Home Learning College provide is second to none and the backup and resources for these courses is fantastic value for money.
You learn at your own pace and can ask questions and attend feedback sessions with Tutors on these forums too.
Only thing I think they need to expand is the range of Microsoft and CompTIA courses available.
Other than that, brilliant !
enrolment number 3271042748
Background: I have completed two qualifications in Web design with the Home Learning College.
I would recommend Home Learning College qualifications if you can afford the time and the cost but also you must be willing to put in the effort. HLC is for self-motivated people.
I am currently working as a Web designer, and I have found that the HLC qualifications give you a solid grounding in Web languages. The courses I have undertaken have quite honestly made me more proficient in coding, and I can also practice better Web standards – something that is desirable on the job. I do not think I would ever get the same level of understanding by simply reading a book.
The downside to HLC I would say is that the qualifications I have earned are on occasion, not officially recognised. For example when I put down my HLC qualifications on official forms, I have had to prove their value and get tutors/HLC to attest the qualifications. If HLC could in the future do more to get the qualifications recognised overseas it would be better.
But on the whole I would say it was an investment that was worthwhile.
I studied accountancy with Home Learning College. While I was studying I found a permanent job. The company I applied to were impressed with my capabilities but also liked the fact that I was studying a subject that would potentially be useful for my development. The course was accredited by AAT and the tutors at Home Learning College were extremely supportive. I achieved excellent results through my dedication but with their help and availability studying was very enjoyable as I could study at my own pace. Ihighly recommend Home Learning College to people that need flexibility for their studies.

Just a few words to say how I have found taking on my AAT course with HLC. I was a bit apprehensive at first about taking on the course and a distance learning one at that - I wasn't sure if I would be able to understand it all and work through it without being in a classroom atmosphere.
But so far, it has been stress-free, very interesting and I wish I had started it sooner! Other than the actual material being interesting, I would also like to emphasise that this has been helped by the fact that I have an excellent tutor who always gets back to me with any query, however small, and great support and patience in other tutors when I have sat through the live classes, etc. Everyone has been patient, polite and friendly which helps so much when you are studying remotely.
Many thanks HLC! :-)
