"I have really enjoyed this course and have learned a lot. My tutor has been very supportive and encouraging. I did find it difficult near the end but my tutor explained things differently and pointed me in the right direction. I wouldn't hesitate to commence another course with NCC again."
S Love, Co Londonderry - Proofreading Diploma
"Thank you for all your help through the course. I found the course very beneficial and the support was great, thanks again and I will definitely think about doing another course in the future!"
K Powell, Scunthorpe - Teaching Assistant Diploma
"This diploma took my interest as it was a completely new subject area for me, and I felt it would help me in my workplace and outside.
The level of support has been excellent - detailed feedback on essays and any clarification required was given quickly and in-depth via email by my course tutor. The course material is easy to follow, and the list of references is useful for suggestions to help with further reading. I look forward to using NCC Home Learning for another course in the future."
Anon - Proofreading Diploma
"I heard a statistic somewhere about the drop out rate for distance learning courses - frightening. I can honestly say that not once did I feel overwhelmed or unable to complete my two diploma courses with NCC. The tutors I had were excellent and the support was fantastic. I would certainly recommend them. Every question I had was answered and I was given clear and constructive feedback. My tutors were encouraging and helpful and I am very proud of my achievements."
"I have just completed the Counselling Diploma and have really enjoyed the whole experience. My on-line tutor was very helpful and the course contents were challenging which is exactly what I needed.
Thanks NCC your courses are 5 star."
Anon - Counselling Diploma
"The course I have just studied has been really interesting. It was the Criminal Psychology Course. I completed the paper based course, where I was sent all the information that I needed to complete the course. It was really important to me that I could pay a deposit and then pay in installments as I couldn't afford it all in one go. I got all the support that I needed throughout the course from my tutor that was assigned to me at the beginning of the course. I contacted my tutor by email. Once I'd completed an essay for marking I was able to email it in to my tutor saving postage and time. My tutor would mark my work making comments on areas that I could of improved in and areas that I'd done really well with. I always looked forward to receiving the results of my essays. At the beginning of the course I had an issue with the tutor that had been assigned to me...I contacted the college and withing a week I'd been assigned a new tutor with I was really pleased with as they had dealt with the situation really well. I enjoyed this course that much that I am in the process of studying another course with them."
Anon - Criminal Psychology Diploma
"I have just completed the Diploma in Criminal Profiling. I was a concerned that I would not understand it having no prior education in this subject. I actually found it fascinating, and really enjoyed the whole course. I watch a lot of crime programmes but some of the criminals I researched for the course I had no prior knowledge of so really enjoyed finding out about them. There are so many good sources of information now to help you with your research, the internet and you tube I find lots of documentaries to help you.
If you have an interest in crime and the reasons why criminals carry out there crimes I would highly recommend this course. You get assigned a tutor who helps you after you submit your work with some great feedback.
I cant wait to start the next one."
K Hyam, Kent - Psychology of Criminal Profiling Diploma
"I was a bit nervous in starting this course as I had no previous learning background on this subject. I found it really interesting and knew a limited amount about some of the study cases. I really enjoyed research them in more detail, and learning more about them. I had continual feedback and support from my tutor which was very encouraging and informative.
I cant wait to get started on my next one."
"I have just finished my course with NCC and couldn't be happier.... not only with the results but also the course and the tutor support and feedback. If you are looking for a course and like me lack some confidence then just go for it and go with NCC you won't be disappointed. :-) Nothing to dislike.....value for money and well structured."
L Parker, Middlesex - Counselling Diploma
"The service has been excellent right from the initial registration. Response to the two assignments was very prompt and most informative. Very happy and would like to complete the course hopefully before the suggested date."
R Pilkington, Worcester - Customer Service Diploma
"I like the way the course is broken down into small manageable questions. I am working part time and a mum so I need to fit the study time around everything else, therefore I can only study for short periods of time. It is great to tick activities off as I complete them which keeps me motivated."
H Talbot, Bristol - Teaching Assistant Diploma
"I find the tutors feedback most helpful, she not only comments on the ability of my work to answer the activity and elarning outcomes, but also on a more personal level how it may contribute to my work as a Life Coach and in general."
M Sugden, Isle of Wight - Life Coaching and Business Start-up
"Course very interesting and easy to follow. very easy to get in contact with tutor when needed."
H Sharp, Market Rasen - NLP Diploma
"Excellent course. Excellent choice of courses. I would highly recommend NCC Home Learning as a company to do business with as they it easy for you to pay in instalments."

T Chenyika, Reading - Forensic Psychology Diploma
"I am really enjoying the Wedding Planner Diploma course and the feedback I am getting from my tutor is really good!".
R Price, Bristol - Wedding Planner Diploma
"I have thoroughly enjoyed completing the course; the tutor has been excellent and encouraged me all the way. It is good to have a tutor with a policing background as he puts feedback in jargon that I understand."
A Wolstenholme, Manchester - Psychology of Criminal Profiling Diploma
"In April 2010 I enrolled on a Criminal Psychology Course with NCC Home Learning. I had been away from study for nearly 6 years and I decided I would like to study something interesting and this course was something that has always interested me as why does crime occur? For example is it nature or nurture? Is it society or political interference? Does the media play a role?
At first I was a little nervous especially when I saw all the additional reading however these are there as tools to help and books can be bought off Amazon for a few pound and the internet always has good information on. I did at first not really understand the concept of referencing as this was a different level to what I had previously studied, however my tutor was always on hand and gave me advice on this and how to formulate my essays to place my own stamp upon them, which I did and I ended up getting better feedback and grew in confidence as the course progressed. I would say that from inception of the course all staff I was involved with were helpful and always on hand and the course was very well written and I enjoyed studying it so much I enrolled on a Diploma In Forensic Psychology before completing the Criminal Psychology Course (which I am now enjoying). Overall I would say to anybody considering learning this course to do it."
S Hodgins, Birmingham - Criminal Psychology Diploma
"I have received my final Forensic Science Diploma, and want to thank you all for your support and patience. I fully enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone. As a mum it was nice to be able to do the course from home and it also helped build my confidence. I am now working towards my maths and then university, which would be a massive achievement for me. Thank you all."
S Gumus, Essex - Forensic Science Diploma
"I'd definitely recommend this course. It is a recognised awarding body certificate for one thing which is impressive at interviews and on your CV, and it goes into a great deal of things. There is more breadth than depth and some things are only touched on fairly lightly, but for someone like a school chaplain it is an amazing course to do. I am finding that it is complementing my youth work training and my child protection training quite well.
It is not on a par with BACP counselling qualifications and therefore doesn't make you a recognised counsellor for, say, the NHS. But the things you have to do to get BACP status these days mean that it's only really worth it for a full-time professional counsellor (450 hours of observed practice time for instance, and a qualification, and indemnity insurance, and lots of other things!) This is a good course for somebody in youth work/ teaching etc. or anyone who will have to do a bit of counseling and who wants to know which way is up!"
J Regan, Cumbria - Counselling Diploma
"Thanks to everyone for their support - I have recommended you to everyone who asks!!"
L Blay, Warrington - Child Psychology Diploma
"Thanking you kindly to the NCCHL Team for your timely responses between my tutor and myself which saved many days of anxiety! To my tutor: thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you so very much!
Your feedback has truly astounded me and enabled my further aspirational growth throughout the entire course which will continue to carry me through from strength to strength. Invaluable, thank you."
B Fletcher, Oxfordshire - Forensic Psychology Diploma
"Thank you for your support during these 12 months - I have loved every minute of my course and am pleased to say that it has benefited both myself and my children!"
L Blay, Warrington - Child Psychology Diploma
"I would just like to say thanks for everything and I am actually studying teaching/child psychology at University level now, I enjoyed the module a lot and it definitely helped me make the choice to take it further."
K Prinsloo, London - Child Psychology Diploma
"I would like to say thanks to my Tutor; his feedback was very helpful and I feel my skills in the subject have improved as a result. He was also very prompt with his feedback which helped alot. Thanks again!"
R Poole, Cardiff - Psychology Diploma (paperbased)
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the NCCHL team and tutor for quick responses over the period of taking my course and that I have really enjoyed every minute of it."
J Dewberry - Dorset, Counselling Diploma

J Conroy - Ireland, Criminal Psychology Diploma
"Keep up the good work NCC!"
E Simons - Runcorn, Child Psychology Diploma
“I was really excited to get stuck into my Criminal Psychology course and I was not disappointed! The tutor support was excellent and a huge reassurance. The course materials were fascinating and the assignments seemed more like a hobby than homework!
I have just received my Criminal Psychology Diploma Certificate and am so thrilled I am now looking into doing a second course with NCC Home Learning!”
P Davies - Southampton, Criminal Psychology Diploma
“After a brief spell helping out with reading at my children’s school I realised I may have missed my calling in life. NCC Home Learning’s Teaching Assistant course was ideal for me as I could learn the ins and outs of what being a teaching assistant involved, whilst gaining a qualification. I now help out regularly at the school and the information the Teaching Assistant course has given me has been invaluable!”
B Hodgkins - Cheshire, Teaching Assistant Diploma
“I was delighted with my Wedding Planner course. It covered every aspect of planning a wedding and on top of this covered how to set up and promote my own wedding planning business. The activities, although some where challenging, allowed me to apply what I had learnt in a practical way. All in all I was extremely impressed with this Wedding Planner course.”
K Dyer - Bournemouth, Wedding Planner Diploma
"I am very pleased with the service offered. I thought that the tutor was very encouraging and I felt that I learnt a lot from the course."
L Trollope - Dereham, Life Coaching Diploma
"I would certainly recommend NCC Home learning to anyone wanting to further their education. Being a mum and holding down a job I found that working at your own pace was very beneficial to me. The course material was of good quality and easy to understand and together with feedback from my tutor and the NCC team it helped me gain the qualification I wanted to obtain."
T Goodwin - Newcastle under Lyme, Teaching Assistant Diploma
"I have not studied for over 20 years so starting home learning was a huge step for me. The course material I received was excellent and I found myself wanting to research more about the topics I was studying before any essays were sent in. Tom my tutor was fantastic always on hand if I had any queries. His feedback was excellent I learnt so much from him. I would definitely recommend Home learning, working at your own pace and gaining knowledge as well as receiving a qualification at the end of it."
S Noakes - Liverpool, Criminal Psychology Diploma
"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and will consider another one soon. I must also add that the prompt replies and positive feedback from my assessor was exceptional and very motivating."
R MacKenzie - Edinburgh, Counselling Diploma
"This course was very challenging and rewarding; my tutor was very helpful and considerate. She even gave me tips on completing my university application!"
R Smithson - Preston, Proofreading Diploma
"I have now completed my course in Acrylic Sculpted Nails and I wish to thank you for all your assistance which enabled me to complete this course successfully. I would recommend your company to anyone. Thank you!"
E Kottoh - Ghana, Acrylic Sculpted Nails
"I was exceptionally pleased with the content and the presentation. I was most pleased that all of the modules arrived together and not individually as this allowed me to be able to read ahead and get an overall feel for what I was doing. It also meant that I could start the next assignment while I was waiting for my tutor to mark the previous one."
B Johnson - Preston, Wedding Planner Diploma
"I have been an assistant in a care home now for about 4 years but never had a certificate specifically in Dementia to back up my experience. This course gave me the theoretical information to link to my practical experience and I will certainly be working my way through the remaining VRQ courses."
M Morrison - Cardiff, Dementia Awareness VRQ
"I am really enjoying this course as it has always been a subject of interest to me. The essays really get down to the nitty gritty. You do need to extra research which I have found amazing as when I start reading into an area I can't seem to stop!!"
L Lewis - Liverpool, Criminal Psychology Diploma
"I would just like to say I have enjoyed this course and believe I have learnt a lot from this and will hopefully use this in my desired career in Substance Misuse. The course is well documented and I have been given full support and guidance through this and would recommend to others."
D Dobson - Gateshead, Responding to Substance Misuse
"I have just received my certificate for the completion of my Life Coaching course, and I am writing to say thank you for such a professionally led course. Very enjoyable and which also made it a pleasure to learn! Thank you."
D Bignell - Southampton, Life Coaching
"I would just like to say that you have given me exellent support in my coursework by being prompt, professional and very helpful. I would recommend the NCC to any one in the future and will be using you guys again."
D Dobson - Tyne and Wear, Responding to Substance Misuse
"My tutor's comments are an enormous boost to me. I am truly enjoying the course, but the positive feedback is putting the icing on the cake! To start with, when I submitted an assignment or my exercises and notes I felt apprehension because I was sharing personal experiences with a stranger. However, the tutor responses have made me feel as though they understand and I now feel safe to share things.
A correspondence course does not provide the conventional tutor / student relationship, but from my perspective our relationship is as supportive as anyone would expect to receive from a tutor that they see on a regular basis."
C Davis - Gloucestershire, Life Coaching Diploma
"I haven't studied any thing like this since my apprenticeship days 45 years ago. I'm amazed how much I did not know. This is truly a great course."
D Hancock - Cornwall, Developing Environmental Awareness
"A huge learning curve but well worth it!"
C Morris - Shropshire, Proofreading Diploma
"This was a thoroughly enjoyable course. The Life Coaching Diploma course enabled me to identify areas of my life where I needed to make change and provided me with the necessary skills to make those changes easily. The course has given me the confidence to take steps toward creating the future I really want and the conviction to make sure it happens. This course challenged me at times and made me take a good look at myself, but with expert tutor support and great communication from ncc home learning I found the experience extremely rewarding and satisfying. The course is superbly written and the tutor feedback absolutely fantastic! I now feel equipped to press ahead with my plans to set up my life coaching business in Leeds, whilst continuing with further studies to continue my professional development. I can highly recommend it!"
G Lucas - Wakefield, Life Coaching Diploma
"I have very little time to study and read of late, so a distance learning course was ideal for me. My first choice however would have been a course where face to face interaction was possible for various reasons. This is why I chose this particular course because the content of the modules could counteract the lack of interaction. With this in mind, I can honestly say that I am pleased with my choice as I have learnt more than I expected through being encouraged to do more research into different forms of mediation.
I am no stranger to distance learning and I have never made much use of the allocated tutors. Somehow I didn't stand still and realise the importance of a good tutor on a short distance course like this one. Neither was I ready for the impact of my tutor's words of encouragement and confidence in me as a new mediator. The feedback on assignments opened my eyes to my own capabilities in terms of being mature and ready enough for such a position.
I believe that my tutor was in tune with my needs and offered a qualitative feedback that nurturing and motivating towards further achievement and expression. For this I am very grateful and am aware that this quality in tutoring is hard to come by these days. Thank you. Experience and wisdom are priceless."
D Barnes - Erdington, Mediation Diploma
"This course is really making me think about the way I present training, which is a great experience!"
T Williams - Kent, Training and Development Diploma
"I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed doing this course and would like to thank you all for your feedback and comments."
S Hubble - Levenhulme, Mental Health
"I found your Life Coaching course very inspiring, my tutor extra helpful and I would recommend it to anyone - in fact I will soon be purchasing your Counselling course."
G Gray - London, Life Coaching
"What a year! It's been such a change in my life since I decided to become an event planner! This last few months have been so completely different from everything that's gone before that I couldn't begin to tell you. Being an event planner is like something I feel I was born to be - but I never knew it."
Emily Hughes - Epping, Event Planner
"At 45 I have recently completed a Diploma in Counselling with NCC Home Learning. I researched all the providers fairly exhaustively and concluded that NCC Home Learning offered the optimum value without any hidden extras. I quickly received the course and followed the instructions to the letter as I felt apprehensive to say the least. Perhaps the best thing about the NCC Home Learning Programme, apart from value for money, is that it dealt squarely with real life practical applications and constantly tested for understanding of general principles."
Richard - Dorset, Counselling
"I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and now I'll have to start looking at ways in which to implement my newly acquired knowledge. I have a few ideas I'm considering. I hope to be able to implement a few of them in the near future."
Deon Minnie - South Africa, Mediation Diploma
"I originally chose to take on a classroom course to teach Acrylic nails and after the course completion I tried to do nail extensions on a relative and it was an absolute nightmare! 3 Days after getting the Acrylic Tip and Overlay Nails Course I did a fantastic set of nails and was thrilled to bits! The option to pay by instalments meant that I did not have to find the money all at once after just paying a fortune for the classroom course."
Liz Clarke - Birmingham, Acrylic Tip and Overlay Nails
"Due to time and personal commitments I was unable to attend College on a regular basis and after searching through various online companies I was pleased to find a distance learning organisation that could provide everything I needed, when I needed it along with expert tutor support."
Miss Bennett - Edinburgh, Wedding Planner Diploma
"After being stuck in a dead end job for over 20 years, I decided to take the plunge and follow my dream career path of working with children. Thanks to NCC Home Learning, I now manage my own local nursery and enjoy getting up for work every morning!"
Mrs Willow - Merseyside, Children's Care Learning and Development
“I was able to complete my online Food Hygiene course within one day, which suited me and my employer perfectly and my certificate arrived within 14 days, which was a lot quicker than I anticipated! I would certainly return to NCC Home Learning to complete future online learning courses as I could not fault the service provided to me.”
Ms Kelly - Worcester, Food Hygiene
"I believe that home learning is an excellent method of study as I can complete courses at my own pace, as after working all day College is not somewhere that a lot of people want to be.
I will be revisiting the NCC Home Learning website to take adantage of my 10% discount as a repeat customer as I woud like to make my studies an ongoing process. I have now already completed two courses with NCC Home Learning."
M. Passmore - Warwick, Food Hygiene and Safety Compliance
"I found the course very efficient and I was able to complete it as quickly as I wished to do so. I enjoyed the course thoroughly and found it to be great value for money as I shopped around for this course initially. I will definitely study with NCC Home Learning again and my next course will be the Aromatherapy Diploma."
C. Simpson - County Londonderry, Safe Handling of Medicines
"I was very happy with my course and found that the support I received from my tutor was excellent. I feel that the experience was positive all round and chose this particular course due to my employment within this field."
P. Chell - Yeovil, Infection Control
"I am very happy with the course overall and found the material very easy to understand."
A. Howe - Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Care Planning and Documentation
"I would have to say that I found everything quite brilliant. The online tutors are great and get back to you quickly if you have a query. The coursework you receive is easy to follow and concise.
I have nothing but praise for NCC and the staff they have, without them I would never have got my Diploma in Psychology, so many thanks."
S. Shepherd - East Sussex, Diploma in Psychology
"I would just like to say thank you for all the support you have offered me through-out my study with NCC Home Learning. You have made it simple to gather feedback for all modules and have answered all queries either the same day or the next working day. The emails you have sent have been light-hearted and have answered my queries (and there has been a few of them!). This has made it feel as though no question is too much for you to answer or any task I have asked of you too great.
I have now completed the course I have been studying and am waiting for the certificate to arrive. I have every intention of studying with NCC in the near future and have recommended your services to others.
Feedback from the tutor has been prompt and offered constructive observations about the work. I have found the course informative, challenging and rewarding and am more than happy with the services you and the team at NCC have provided."
A. Owen - Coventry, Responding to Substance Misuse
