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.
