  • Would 100% recommend NCC Home Learning

    By on 17 May 2016
    After searching many, many company's offering online courses I almost gave up and got disheartened by it. Most company's charge a ridiculous amount of money and if you want to pay in instalments you more than likely have to pay over £100 extra for their fee costs. I gave it one last chance to find a course I wanted to study and I stumbled onto NCC Home learning. I thought this is to be good to true offering loads of subjects prices are very reasonable and no fee on instalments for my course! I was shocked so I signed up and within a week I received my course modules and few days later a tutor. Quick and Responsive!!

    It's hard to find the motivation to study from home when I'm working full time, I'm a wife, own a house, battling my own demons of depression and having dyslexia. But each module kept me interested and found myself search more and more about mental health. My tutor is amazing and has given feedback on every piece of coursework I have done. The module book is so descriptive and well presented that it is helping me achieve my goal in completing this course. This course has not only helped give me an insight into my own mental health but how I can help other people who are suffering with mental health also.

    I would like to say a huge thank you to my Tutor that has been supportive and would like to say a huge thank you to NCC Home Learning without you I wouldn't of been In the job I am in now!. If your looking at starting a course I would 100% recommend NCC Home Learning. It's never to late to learn and also it improves your mental well being. I am already looking at work course to do next as there are so many to chose from. Thanks again!
