FAQs

What is distance learning?

Distance learning is the most flexible and convenient approach to studying. There is no need for you to attend college and, therefore, you can study anytime, any place, anywhere that fits in with your lifestyle. Distance learning programmes are ideal for people who may have a full-time job, or other commitments, that won’t allow them time off to study.

What do I need to do to get started on a course?

You need to be able to commit your time to the course. To help you understand the commitment needed, each of the course descriptions estimates the amount of time it will take you to complete the course. This is based on an average study period of approximately 10 hours per week.

It is best to choose a course you think will interest you, and help you to achieve your ambitions. If you would like some advice, or further information, please call our helpline free on 0333 3445 690.

To purchase a course, simply click on the ‘Buy Now’ option against your chosen course and follow the on screen instructions. Alternatively if you would prefer to purchase the course over the phone or by post, call our helpline free on 0333 3445 690.

How does the distance learning/home study method work?

The course operates through a study pack and access to your own personal tutor. Once you have chosen your course we will send you your study pack, which you will be required to work through before completing the course.

Depending on the course you have chosen, you will either be required to complete assignments and submit these for marking as the course progresses and/or be required to sit an end exam. The end exam could be in the form of multiple choice questions, or be an invigilated exam at a registered test centre.

Your completed assignments will need to be sent to your tutor for marking/assessment, you will then receive written feedback and guidance. It may be possible to submit your assignments by email, however you will need to check this with your tutor. Please be aware that your assignments will be maintained by NCCHL for moderation and audit purposes.

These requirements will always be listed on the course description page, so please refer to this for details of what is required for each individual course.

How long should it take to complete a course?

Depending on the course you have chosen, and the amount of time you can commit, it could take from six weeks to nine months to complete your course.

The duration of the course is largely down to you though. The beauty of home learning is that it allows you complete flexibility to fit your studies around your lifestyle and other commitments. You can dedicate as much, or as little, time as you want to your studies - no one will be chasing you for your work or asking why you haven’t submitted an assignment.

We do strongly recommend, though, that before you purchase a course you assess your ability to commit the necessary time to completing the course in a timeframe that will not leave you losing your motivation.

How quickly will I receive my course material?

We guarantee that you will receive your course materials within 5 days of purchase, but for many courses we would anticipate that you will have to wait no more than 48 hours.

The course materials are always sent to you via a tracked courier service, to ensure that you receive your study pack within our stated period.

How much will it cost?

The cost is largely dependent on the size of the course. The longer the course is the higher the cost will be, due to the size of the study pack and the nature of the qualification.

All prices are clearly stated on the course description page and will always be displayed prior to you committing to purchase a course.

Please note that postage and packaging is charged in addition to the course price.

What support will I receive?

You will be allocated your own personal tutor who can be contacted via e-mail, telephone, fax or post for help and advice on any aspect of the course.

Many courses require that you submit work to your tutor during the period of study and your tutor will assess your work and pass comments back to you. Your tutor is available to you as much as you need them.

Please be aware that officially the tutor support provided with the course is for a period of 12 months, although if you need longer let us know and we’ll endeavour to extend that.

Will I have to sit an examination?

All of our courses are accredited, so you need to show that you have acquired the knowledge to pass the course – this may involve sitting an examination, but it depends on the course you have chosen.

Some courses require you to be continually assessed throughout the course, while others may require an end of course exam or assignment (which may be completed at home) to be submitted to your tutor.

Certain types of qualifications, A-levels and GCSEs for example, do require you to sit an invigilated exam at a registered test centre. You will need to organise the examination yourself, however full details of what you need to do will be included in your study pack.

The details of what sort of exam/assignment (if any) is required for a course will be stated on the course description page, so please check these for full details.

Can I study from outside the UK?

Yes, there are no geographical limits to where you can study.

You just need to be aware that all tutors are based in the UK and work may need to be submitted to them via post, although in most cases e-mail can be used.

Where the course requires that you sit an invigilated exam at a test centre, there are many exam centres outside of the UK. However, we would advise that you check with us before purchasing one of these courses if you want to study from abroad.

Will I receive a qualification when I complete the course?

All of our courses are accredited and you will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.

For more information about this please see the section of the website that details how awarding bodies work and what the different types of qualifications are.

Can I take more than one course at a time?

Yes, you can take as many courses as your time allows. But we would recommend that you clearly evaluate how much time you can commit to your courses of study.

The good news is though that if your circumstances change you can always take a break and come back to your studies.

Additionally, discounts are available if you buy more than one course at the same time.

How long will it take for my work to be marked by my tutor?

Your work will be marked and feedback returned to you within 12 working days after submission. This is because our tutors are required to provide detailed, considered feedback to our learners that may take a while to formulate. We find that by working this way, our learners actually complete their course in less time, as they rarely need to submit an assignment more than twice.

Whilst it is possible to submit multiple assignments at the same time, we advise that our learners submit only one at a time. We want our learners to develop as they progress through their course, and find this is best achieved when a student embarks on a new module having taken into account tutor feedback from the previous submission.

Do I need any additional books or equipment to do my course?

No, we provide everything you need to pass your course.

How do I enrol?

Once you have chosen your course, you can either purchase the course online which will enrol you, or you can call our helpline on 0333 3445 690 who will sign you up for the course and arrange to have all your learning materials sent to you.

What if I’ve chosen the wrong course?

If, after receiving the course, you decide it isn’t the right course for you, you can simply return the goods within 14 days and we will send your money back in full for the majority of courses (excluding postage and packaging) or you can choose another course that you feel would suit your needs and ambitions better.

What is the difference between the online and paper versions of courses?

Our online courses are completed through our online learning system after receiving login and access instructions. You will not receive any course materials through the post. The paper based version is posted out in a binder to your home or place of work and requires completion of a portfolio of work that is submitted to your tutor for marking.

Where can I find your Equality and Diversity Policy?

All NCC policies and procedures can be provided on request from NCC directly by emailing enquiries@ncchomelearning.co.uk or calling 0333 3445 690.

Can reasonable adjustments be made to help reduce the effects of a disability or difficulty that may place me at a disadvantage?

A reasonable adjustment is any action that helps to reduce the effect of a disability or difficulty that places the candidate at a substantial disadvantage in the assessment situation. Reasonable adjustments must not affect the integrity of what needs to be assessed, but may involve:

Changing standard assessment arrangements, for example allowing candidates extra time to complete the assessment activity Adapting assessment materials, such as providing materials in Braille Providing access facilitators during assessment, such as a sign language interpreter or a reader Re-organising the assessment room, such as removing visual stimuli for an autistic candidate.

Reasonable adjustments are approved or set in place before the assessment activity takes place; they constitute an arrangement to give the candidate access to the assessment activity. The use of a reasonable adjustment will not be taken into consideration during the assessment of a candidate’s work.

Awarding organisations and centres are only required by law to do what is ‘reasonable’ in terms of giving access. What is reasonable will depend on the individual circumstances, cost implications and the practicality and effectiveness of the adjustment. Other factors, such as the need to maintain competence standards and health and safety, will also be taken into consideration.

“Finished my course with NCC”

Have recently finished a Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 3, and I have found doing my course with NCC was one of the best decisions I have made! They have been really supportive and helpful through out my experience of learning with them. I would like to thank Lauren Duller for her promptly passing on my assignments to my tutor and replying to my questions quickly and her suppportive words through out the course. I also want to thank Fiona Dodd my tutor for her feedback throughout the course and for marking my assignements and offering feedback so promptly also! Her advice and feedback has benefited me immensely! I also want to thank Kerri Morgan for being there throughout the course, she helped me get to my end goal, and was truly a life saver! NCC has proven to be a success with me, and highly recommend them to others!

“Friendly, helpful, organised and efficient!”

After being ripped off by another online college, NCC got me back on track and really went the extra mile. They offer a personal service that is super friendly while also incredibly organised and efficient - I have completed two modules so far and their tutors are just as fab as their administration staff...will definitely complete more courses with them after this one!

“Would definitely use again!”

I am almost finished my Level 3 Teaching Assistant Course and have really enjoyed it. The tutors have been really helpful, answering any queries or questions I have quickly, explaining (sometimes quite a few times) areas I was struggling with, even phoning me to explain in more detail when I was struggling with how to write my observations.

I have already recommended this course to my friend at work who has just started it and if I need to do any other courses in the future I would definitely do them with NCC Home Learning :)

“The most convenient way to learn”

Nearly at the end of my L3 Supporting Teaching and Learning course. When first seeing the modules, a little overwhelming at first, been out of studying for an awful long time. The folder is well set out and has all relevant information to get you started, how to reference your work, how to do bibliography which is of great help if you haven't studied for a while like me. I found questions hard to understand at first because of the wording but once I got into the course this became easier but it is L3 so to be expected.

The course content is thorough and helped me gain a lot of knowledge and helped me understand and be more involved in my role. All coursework has been sent by email, Sally and my tutor have made this easy for me. Emails are responded to promptly and coursework marked within a reasonable time. Convenient, can study at own pace with guidelines for when modules due but no pressure to meet deadlines. Would definitely do another course with NCC and would recommend.

“Career changing!”

I began studying with NCC Home learning to prepare for a career in teaching.

I have gained extensive knowledge on child development and teaching approaches, I could never gain in the classroom and feel my writing skills have improved, to a degree standard, because of the support I have received.

I feel I was accepted to attend university, to study my PGCE, because of this course, as I’ve been taken more seriously, than in previous interviews because of the knowledge I’ve gained with NCC. My teaching has improved and I am more confident in the classroom because of the help I have received.

This experience has been life changing for me, as my dream career is now becoming a reality.

I would advise anyone looking to broaden his or her horizons to look into what NCC has to offer. This course will definitely not be my last with NCC as the tutor support and wide range of courses make it great value for money.

Thank you NCC Home Learning!

“Can really recommend”

I have really enjoyed this course and I received a really well presented NCC Home learning book when I started the course. The home learning phone number and email means that you can always get support with your course should you need it. My tutor Lucy O’Donoghue has promptly responded to any queries that I have had with regards to the course and sent back marked work within a few days sometimes on the same day. Sally Swift has also been very helpful with any queries that I have had.

I can really recommend using NCC Home Learning and I may well use them again for any future courses, myself once I have finished my current course.

“Will definitely recommend NCC”

This course was my first experience of studying via distance learning. Initially I found it difficult to have no face to face contact. However, the feedback received from my tutor was extremely helpful and I was always able to ask any questions via Sally Swift who promptly passed them onto my tutor Kerry Steele. I then found it much easier to settle into the content of the course. Both Kerry and Sally were very helpful and supportive and I will consider undertaking a further course in the not too distance future. Thank you, I will definitely recommend NCC to anyone I know who is considering undertaking a qualification via distance learning.
