These courses allow learners to study flexibly and are available in a variety of subject areas including health and social care, mental health, education and training, nutrition and health and business management.

Each course is made up of between two and four modules which offers a fast and flexible way to learn or update skills and gain a recognised qualification.

Angela Bates, college assistant principal, explained some of the benefits of undertaking a distance learning course.

She said: “As a college we’re committed to playing a part in our local communities of Worksop and Retford, and across north Nottinghamshire.

“We’ve had so much interest in our distance learning courses since people have begun the shift to working at home or have been unable to go into work.

“Distance learning courses are ideal for people thinking of learning something new or as a way to update their skills; a big benefit of distance learning is that you can fit it in around existing commitments and it is a flexible way to learn.”

“The college may be closed at the moment, but we’re still here and our commitment to education remains as strong as ever.”
