Affordable Courses within our College or Distance Learning (Free for 16-18 within the College)

Courses and CPDs

Our courses are free for 16-18s and eligible 19 year olds.

We have designed the courses that are relevant to the current markets. It is customary for most online providers to deliver courses that are level 4 and above. However, the Management team and Advisors at Learners Progress College are aware that there is a need for lower level qualifications and have designed programmes from Entry levels to level 5 to meet various academic needs.

There are actually learners around the globe with potential but lack the opportunity and we are here to unlock this. This is evident in the courses we offer, the way we structure these courses and our price structure. Our courses are well designed and effectively mapped to the criteria in the respective awarding specification but tailored in a way to meet your need.
