What do students think about our approach to Distance Learning?

"I have just finished completing the Level 3 Certification in Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools (RQF). During the course, my tutor changed (First I had Sam and then Kerry); however, that did not affect the level of support I received. Both the tutors I had were great at supporting me and gave valuable feedback to help me improve my skills. In particular, my second tutor, Kerry, had great attention to detail and gave me very detailed and constructive feedback which made me understand the subject in depth. All my assignments were turned around very promptly, and she was always very helpful in case of any clarifications. I would like to thank Kerry for her support, guidance, help and encouragement in completing the course. I am very grateful for all the knowledge I have obtained. Also, I would like to thank Mr.Bill for all the help and support provided whenever I called the Student Support Helpline. I would highly recommend UKOpenCollege to anyone."
