Distance Learning At Preston College

Our brand new range of distance learning courses, designed exclusively for adults aged 19 and above, offer you the flexibility to study a range of courses whenever and wherever you like.

Distance learning is not remote, online learning. Remote, online learning often requires you to log into on-line classes at a set time/date; distance learning provides the flexibility to study whenever you like, at a time and place that best suits your needs. This allows you to secure additional knowledge whilst juggling busy lifestyle and employment commitments.

Tutors will be on hand to support you throughout your studies but learning will be undertaken in your own time, as you work your way through a series of tasks, which must be completed.

The suite of distance learning courses offered here at Preston College will grow as the year progresses, with our initial offer focusing on Wellbeing and Mental Health.

Please note, our distance learning suite of courses are knowledge based programmes only and are not formal qualifications.
