"The course is well structured and the academic support was overwhelming"
Fab5 Award Winner 2015 - Patience Waddup
I am happy to take this opportunity to say thank you very much for all the support. I had never expected to study on-line and achieve education at this level, as a mum and in full-time work. DistanceLearningCentre.com have made that dream come true.
The course was very challenging, late night studying vs. sleep! The way the tutors lay out and structure the assessments, and the materials provided, made it clear to understand what research is required. Emailing tutors in the middle of night and getting a response in a short space of time was fantastic. The tutors are excellent and exceptional.
I have always wanted to be social worker and help others. The support and encouragement has given me this opportunity and has built the confidence that I needed to go to University. I did not reduce my working hours and still worked full time. I changed the balance of my work life, family life and education to make sure I achieved this Diploma through determination. I have been accepted at Wolverhampton University to study (BA) Hons Social Work Degree and I am so proud. I couldn't have done it without the support. During my University interviews the assignments equipped me to be ready, and thank you for giving time to concentrate on the interviews.
Also, after a family loss my world was falling apart and I was thinking of giving up, but my tutor never gave up on me. My emotions were considered and my tutor communicated with me so easily and made sure that I completed the course. The support you gave me will stay with me forever, especially at such difficult time. The feedback about how much my academic level progressed meant everything. No words can describe how I feel besides to say I am grateful. The least I can say is THANK YOU. (Nov 14)
The course is well structured and the academic support was overwhelming - Karleen Francis-Gazeuse
What an exciting and accelerating journey. DistanceLearningCentre.com has afforded me the privilege of earning whilst learning, as well as enabling me to pursue my dream career as a nurse. Without you this would have remained a dream, since studying full time was out of the question.
The course is well structured and the academic support was overwhelming. Thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com as well as my two amazing tutors who have guided and suported me throughout my journey. You have made it all possible, I could not have done it without you! (Nov 14)
Assessments were explained clearly, giving good guidance the whole way through - Kate Smith
I would like to express my thanks for the help and support I received throughout my course. In 2013 I made the big decision to make a career change from working in accounts to fulfilling my passion to become a midwife. I left college over 10 years ago and went into full time work, had two children but there was something missing. My children are growing up and felt that it was now or never so I took the big decision to take the necessary steps to become a midwife. The course was recommended by a friend so I decided to enquire and I am so glad that I did.
I have now completed my access course to midwifery which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I'm not going to lie, it was difficult with late nights studying, whilst also being a single working mum, but it enabled me to manage my time efficiently to succeed. It was a challenging and tough course but it has allowed me to develop and achieve the credits which are required to apply to university to continue with my dream. I found the tutors very helpful and supportive throughout the course and the assessments were explained clearly, giving good guidance the whole way through.
I am very proud of completing this course and hopefully I will be offered a place to continue my journey to getting a midwifery degree. Something which I would never of been able to do without the help of DistanceLearningCentre.com. Anything is possible when you set your mind to it. (Nov 14)
I didn't want to go back to college and start over for another two years - Erica Amoako
Being at DistanceLearningCentre.com has been a life change for me, after a long stay at home and thinking of what to do. I wanted to study Access to Social Work, but I didn't want to go back to college and start over for another two years. I looked on to the internet and saw the DistanceLearningCentre.com website which I browsed around and saw the testimonies other students gave. It gave me the courage to do it because it has been my dream to be a Social Worker for a long time.
My confidence has gained a massive boost, knowing that I am able to complete my access course with good grades I didn't expect I would achieve. My course tutor has been very helpful, encouraging me and helping me to achieve the best grades I can. I thank all the DistanceLearningCentre.com team and my tutor for being there for me when I needed help. Thank you all!!! (Nov 14)
