I was asked if I’d like to try a course from NCC Home Learning. The NCC is an online and paper home learning course provider. It offers a wide range of courses in different sections. For example: The Industry section which contains courses like Teaching, Business, Accounts and Marketing.
The Career related section which contains courses like Beautician, Life Coach or Personal Assistant.
The Interest section with courses like Autism Awareness, Geneology and Languages.
You can also choose your course by which type of certificate you’d like to achieve at the end.
Currently the NCC has 30% off the cost of all courses during January, it’s a great time to get started.
I have always believed in life long learning. I left school and went straight into work but since then I’ve completed A ‘level’s and a degree without going down the normal routes and while still working. I often spend my time learning something new. Last year I spent three months learning about human values and which ones are most important to me by doing The Activation Game.
If there is something I’ve always wanted to do, it’s write. As a child I would write stories and poems, I loved creative writing classes at school and I’ve written quite a few short stories as an adult.
I do write a lot of non fiction now but have a desire to write fiction again. To really get into it and maybe even produce a full length story.
This year I’m so please to be learning all about Creative Writing with the NCC Home Learning Course. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I’m really excited.
I’ve already started my course and have just completed the first unit. On signing in you get to access all the modules of the course. I’m assuming that different course will involve different types of work and interaction. Some courses are online only some involve paper work which is sent by post. You are assigned a tutor that will help you with the work and mark your assignments. At the end of the course you get a certificate, or qualification depending on which course you choose.
Deciding on doing a home learning course means you have to be self disciplined and work out a study timetable. The suggest time for learning is 10 hours per week but this varies from course to course. You can speak to someone from NCC home learning before you begin to discuss the time and commitment that will be needed for the course you are interested in. Home learning does offer you flexibility and you can choose when you have the time to learn and how long it takes you to fit in the work required for the course. It’s Your personal time table.
Some courses require you to sit an exam at a registered centre in proper exam conditions. Some courses are assignment based.
The cost of the course varies on which course you choose to do, they vary by amount of material that needs to be provided and the qualification requirements. The prices of each course are always made clear before you make a payment.
Your personal tutor is provided for 12 months but this can be extended if you need it to be. You tutor can be contacted by phone, e-mail, fax or post for help and advice and they will mark your assignments throughout the course.
I’ll be sure to let you know how I get on with my Creative Writing Course. Who knows, maybe I do have a book inside of me?
Is there anything you’d really like to learn? Maybe a photography course, or a new language, or something completely different. I’d love to know in the comments.
