Over the last year, places of learning whether that be Universities or training providers like Able Skills have been exploring ways to provide students with an option for distance learning. For us, this has resulted in our Home Study Courses becoming very popular. 

How Effective Is Home Study?

People often find that distance learning is harder because all the impetus is on you! However, for others, they thrive. Those who can get the most out of the materials that are provided and know where to find additional content will thrive with a distance-learning option. 

We find that many students who choose to go down the distance learning route are doing so because they are unable to commit to a full-time course. They run from Monday to Friday 8:30 AM- 4:00 PM. Some have to look after children and others are still working full time. Home Study will provide you with a huge amount of flexibility. The distance learning market is one of the fastest-growing in the whole education market with a 900% growth since 2000! This is due to technology This is due to technology improvements which have made studying from home a viable option.

People have a wide variety of reasons for opting to follow this path, some have to care for loved ones. Whist others may be working in a completely different industry and are looking to change their career. Here at Able Skills we often welcome students who are looking to chnage their career. With a 9-5 career often being repetitive people crave the variety of working in an industry like Plumbing!
