Post Is Home Learning the Right Choice?
by: Peter Edwards

Home learning is now a highly competitive field - there are hundreds of home learning providers offering everything from university level degrees to language certificates and IT training. In the past few years home study has become a mainstream form of education with a number of advantages over more conventional methods of home learning, such as university or college.

Any course you study should be immediately recognised by employers. A home learning course should be undertaken with a credible and respected provider, or you could risk spending months studying for a certificate worth almost nothing to your potential boss. Once you have decided on the right home study option you should ensure that their courses are fully accredited and that the qualification you receive is a worthwhile investment.

Any good home learning course will be geared towards giving you everything you need to begin working in your chosen field. A home learning student therefore has a distinct advantage over the competition, including those with university and college qualifications. A university differs as subjects are treated in an academic manner; i.e. all theory and less emphasis on applied knowledge.

For example a degree in computer science gives you a broad understanding of the subject but graduates will still require additional “on the job” IT training before starting work. To put it simply, they are two very distinct methods of learning and complement one another greatly. As previously stated a home learning course is concerned with vocational skills and university with an academic and theoretical understanding of a subject.

With a quality home learning provider you’ll have access to many resources you would only expect a university to provide; you’ll be in direct contact with your online tutor and other students often and on a regular basis through an online learning portal. The best home learning providers offer 24-hour assistance with your course and a dedicated personal tutor.

The skills you develop through home study are unique from university or college study: they demonstrate a desire to succeed and willingness to spend your own time acquiring new skills and knowledge. These are clearly attributes valued highly by any employer. Fundamentally the quality and relevance of the course is the most important factor when choosing a course.

If you have chosen a good home learning provider, and provided that you have studied hard and achieved a good grade the qualification will speak for itself and lead to a successful career.
