They run on a rolling programme over 12 weeks with start dates every few months. There will be a charge of £100 for those who don’t complete their course to cover learning materials and registration.
Distance learning courses require a proficient level of written English so you will be required to complete an online English assessment and attend an online induction meeting before being accepted onto the course.
