"My tutor was prepared to help me at all times"
Julie Blackwell - June 2011
After liaising with my local college regarding the timetable for completing the Access Course to Midwifery, Nursing and Health Professionals, disappointedly, I knew that it was not an option for me. I work part-time and have two young children; the timetable did not fit in with my family life. I searched on the internet and found DistanceLearningCentre.com, It answered all my prayers as it fitted in perfectly with my lifestyle and gave me the opportunity to study at my own pace and convenience.
The course materials have been easy to follow and well written, I have found the modules extremely informative and enjoyable. I can honestly say I have not looked back since. The support I received from my tutor has been incredible; he has been very supportive and has felt more like a friend than a tutor. My confidence has grown immensely since completing the course, the hard work has paid off, and the grades have been rewarding.
I am proud that I have achieved a recognised qualification, and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life. The course has been a great experience and I would definitely recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to others. Thank you to all the staff at DistanceLearningCentre.com, in particular to my tutor. Without your help and support I would not have got this far.

I decided in September 2010 that I needed to follow my dream of becoming a Nurse before it was too late, and joined DistanceLearningCentre.com as it was the best way for me to continue working whilst I studied for my Access to Nursing Course.
I managed to complete the course in 8 months, despite losing my Dad in January and working full time, this was onyl possible due to the invaluable support both from my DistanceLearningCentre.com tutor and my family, Pete my husband and my twin girls Rachel and Laura. Without them I would not have made it.
I am very proud of what I have achieved and gained good results along the way, amazing myself at times. Now I am eager to put everything I have learned into practice. Although I am a little nervous about such a major career change at 44 years old, I am looking forward to starting my Adult Nursing Degree in September. So it's never too late to follow your dreams. Thank you DistanceLearningCentre.com.

DistanceLearningCentre.com has enabled me to fulfil my dream of being able to go to University, and complete a Degree in Social Work. I will be starting in September, and actually cannot wait, as DistanceLearningCentre.com has gave me a huge amount of confidence to do this. The work was at a higher level than GCSE so has given a real taste of what the work will actually be like at University standard.
My tutor was prepared to help me at all times and was always very quick to respond to my e-mails with any questions I had. I would most certainly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody!! It is also a much more convenient way of completing work, in the comfort of your own home ... bliss (especially on those cold winter days).

I enrolled onto the DistanceLearningCentre.com access course in January 2010 because it was easier for me to study at home, as I have four children, and it's great that you get to study at your own pace, never rushed. The course itself has been very enjoyable, but also testing at times, although I found a lot of help on the DistanceLearningCentre.com forums and also the tutors were a great help at all times.
Anybody wanting to join and do the Access Course with DistanceLearningCentre.com, do; join now!! I have also wanted to go to university and never thought it was possible until I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com. Now on completing the access course I am a step further to fulfilling my dream! Thanks DistanceLearningCentre.com....here I come career!!

Studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com is a fantastic way of gaining a recognised and quality qualification while still retaining a bit of a life and not interfering with family commitments too much. The support has been second to none and although the workload as been what you'd expect for a qualification like this, it hasn't been too stressful and the little pushes and encouragement have made it a successful straightforward and relatively simple process.
The workload can be effectively managed by regularly updating ILPs and liaising with your personal tutor, which you have email support anytime as well as a weekly call- and of course motivation and dedication from yourself!
All in all I would recommend this method of distance learning to anyone wishing to gain the Diploma but unable to or don't wish not to attend a traditional college course and I am glad I chose DistanceLearningCentre.com over my local college.
