"The only option that allowed me to study alongside employment and family commitments"
The tutors have been fantastic ... they really guide and support you all the way - Katie Woollery
After pursuing a career in finance, getting married and having my daughter, my aspirations have changed and I want to pursue my vocation to be a midwife.
Needing to continue working full time and look after my family, I was so grateful and excited to find DistanceLearningCentre.com as I thought my desire to change career just wasn't going to work, but they have given me the opportunity to study alongside my other commitments in order to obtain the qualification I needed to apply for university.
It has been a tough 14 months but so worth it, gaining invaluable skills ready for university and midwifery training. The course has been really interesting and enjoyable, while the tutors have been fantastic. They really guide and support you all the way.
With the help of DistanceLearningCentre.com anyone can change their career and I would highly recommend them. They have given me a great sense of achievement and I feel that it has been a truly worthwhile experience. Thank you for all your support ... I did it, and so can you!! (Jun 15)
When I completed my first module, I knew that it was the right course for me - Leah Buswell
Fab5 Award Nominee
My experience with DistanceLearningCentre.com has been so rewarding. After not getting the desired grades when I finished college, I didn't think I would ever be able to fulfil my dream of becoming a midwife. After DistanceLearningCentre.com was recommended to me by a friend and when I completed my first module, I knew that it was the right course for me.
I had the ability to continue working as a Maternity Care assistant, and completed my studies on my days off. DistanceLearningCentre.com and my amazing tutors have helped me secure my place at UWE - Bristol University and I can't wait to start in January 2016! (Jun 15)
Allowed me to pay affordable monthly payments and I could still work - Natasha Bellamy
Before the access course I had attempted A-levels and two BTECS at college but I lacked the motivation as I didn't know what I wanted to do, as a result I didn't finish any of them.
So I entered the world of work where I found myself as a payroll administrator for the NHS, I quickly realised that office work was not for me. I began exploring the idea of college again but wasn't sure how I would fund it and at the same time there was a lot of media coverage regarding mental health and Stephen Fry was a big character behind the time to change movement.
I then discovered mental health nursing and I knew this was the right career for me, my job wouldn't allow me to go part-time and attend college so I was disheartened, but then I found DistanceLearningCentre.com who would allow me to pay affordable monthly payments and I could still work!
Just over a year later I have now finished my access to Nursing, Midwifery and Health Professions course and have secured a place at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge to study mental health nursing and I couldn't be happier! Thank you to all my tutors for their ongoing and fantastic support - I couldn't have done it without you! (Jun 15)
The only option that allowed me to study alongside employment and family commitments - Jayde Potter
Fab5 Award Nominee
After 5 years of just dreaming of becoming a Midwife, being stuck in a job I didn't like and thinking it was impossible due to a 60 hour a week job, have a 2 year old and pursue a dream career, I took the decision to study with DistanceLearningCentre.com..
DistanceLearningCentre.com was the only option that allowed me to study alongside employment and family commitments. After 7 years out of study, I found some aspects of the course a challenge but the reading materials, tutorials and flexibility and commitment shown by tutors helped me to achieve the grades needed to go to University. I couldn't have done any of this without DistanceLearningCentre.com and I couldn't be happier! (Jun 15)
A big thank you for helping me achieve my dream - Clare Sawyer
I have always had a passion for nursing and currently work as a care assistant in the community supporting clients suffering with dementia.
DistanceLearningCentre.com allowed me to complete my work when it best suited my lifestyle. For the first half of my course I was travelling around Australia, and the second half I was working full time.
My two tutors were amazing, and supported me completely throughout my studies. I now have the confidence and qualification to go on to do Mental Health Nursing at Swansea University this September 2015. I have recommended DistanceLearningCentre.com to everyone, and want to say a big thank you for helping me achieve my dream! (Jun 15)
