What is Home Learning?

Home learning is a great way for individuals to study at a time and pace to suit you. For many, it is becoming an increasingly popular method of study over more traditional classroom taught sessions. You will have the ability to plan and schedule your own time. There are five main benefits of home learning courses which we will explore further.

• Choice

There are a number of distance learning providers on the market who offer a range of courses. Home learning is becoming an increasingly popular method of study. It is a great way for people to study at a time and pace to suit the individual. NCC Home Learning are a training provider with 15 years’ experience in providing training solutions. NCC offer over 350 courses, so you are sure to find something to match your needs and interests. Subjects range from Acrylic Nails to Zoology.

• Flexibility

Do you want the flexibility to study at your own time and pace? If the answer is yes, then home learning may be ideal for you! Students have the choice to study full-time or part-time which gives learners the freedom to study when it suits you.

• Cost

Home learning is an affordable method of gaining an education. It can be argued that it is a preferred choice over more traditional routes such as university. Home learning is an extremely cost effective way of achieving a qualification. Such programmes cost a lot less than courses that can be taken in a schooling environment. It eliminates the need for travelling to and from classes, which will save learners money on the cost of commuting. The good thing about home learning is you have the flexibility to still earn an income around studying. Typically there are less space limitations and materials needed.

• Social

Home learning courses can provide students with the opportunity to communicate with a range of people from different locations. If you were to study at a local college, you are limited to the amount of contacts you can meet. Many distance learning providers have a student forum which is a great way to chat to people who have the same interests as you, or who may be studying the same programme.

It can be said that home learning can provide a wide range of networking opportunities. In the more traditional classroom taught sessions you are restricted to a smaller number of people, making your networking opportunities limited. Home Learning enables students to stay in their comfort zone, which may help to reduce any other stress.

• Location

Students who choose to complete a home learning course have the option to study at home or at work. Distance learning allows students to study anywhere with a PC and internet access. Home learning programmes eliminate the need to attend classroom sessions. This method of learning provides students with the opportunity to network with a range of different people from different locations


Home Learning courses provide students with a more in depth understanding of the subject area being studied. It is debatable whether students who study from home will learn better when they have the freedom to study at a place and time they choose. Knowledge gained will leave you in good stead for the future. Home learning courses will enable you to enhance your career prospects, which is ideal for individuals who would like to have a change of career, or those of you who would like to progress further in your current job.

So if you think you have the motivation and drive needed to complete a course, then you may like to consider enrolling on to a home learning programme today!
