Distance Learning Providers

If you’re among the thousands of people ‘confined to barracks’ by COVID-19, don’t let it knock your plans off course. Thanks to distance learning, even if you’re in isolation or quarantine, you don’t have to abandon your studies. In fact, the enforced restrictions could offer the perfect opportunity to focus on picking up new skills and qualifications – without distractions.

To help you in this, we’ve put together a list of providers that offer distance learning options. And, for further guidance, don’t forget to read our full-length feature here.

So, whether you are still serving, preparing to leave the Armed Forces or have already left, why not put this unexpected free time to good use? Distance learning means nothing need come between you and your preparations for life in the civilian world, and focusing on courses and training delivered remotely is a sure-fire way to enhance your future employability.
