Having not studied for a long time, will I find it too difficult?
Many of our students are in a similar position, you learn at your own pace, in your own home. There is no pressure, no competition and our friendly tutors will help you overcome any problems you may have, all that you need to do is stay in touch with them.

As a student you will receive personal and ongoing support from our qualified practitioner tutors. Your friendly tutor will guide you through until you gain your Award.
