What are the benefits of distance learning?
Distance learning is quickly gaining prominence amongst adult learners, and it’s easy to see why. Studying a distance course offers the opportunity to enhance your career prospects and expand your earning potential whilst benefiting from freedom and flexibility.
Here are just a few of the reasons why you should choose flexible study with DLC:
Freedom to study in your own way
The main advantage of distance learning is the ability to work at your own pace, in your own time and in the comfort of your own home. This means that with the right planning and schedule in place, you can get a great balance between your study and your other commitments, and even earn while you learn.
Qualifications for every step of your career
Our aim is to offer everyone the tools they need to progress in their career. Whether you’re just starting out in the supply chain industry, or whether you’re an experienced professional in need of management training to help you step up to the next level, our fully tailored qualifications can help your aspirations to become a reality.
Easy access to the resources you need
Unlike a classroom course, with our distance learning courses you don’t have to rely on your notes to pass units or assignments. You can revisit your study materials and online resources at any point to refresh your understanding. You’ll also have unlimited access to DLC’s industry expert tutors and professional mentors, who can offer advice, guidance and support throughout your journey.
Outstanding one-to-one support
We’re proud to have a pass rate of 98%, and one of the main reasons for this is the unrivalled support we offer to everyone who studies with us. From mock exams and assignment writing workshops to Skype and Facetime sessions with your dedicated tutor, we’re dedicated to doing everything we can to help you to achieve success.
Unless you choose to attend one of our group workshops, our tutors and mentors will never address any questions you might have in front of a group. They’ll speak to you directly, and you’ll receive one-to-one tuition and mentorship along every step of the way.
Studying through distance learning won’t just teach you more about your chosen discipline – it will also help you to develop a range of personal skills which are highly transferable to the workplace.
Through the course of your studies, you will develop skills including planning, research, time management, proactivity and organisation, all of which are highly sought after in any career.
Why choose distance learning with DLC?
Distance learning has many benefits, but not every provider can offer the same high quality qualifications and expert tuition.
Here at DLC, we pride ourselves on helping every student to achieve the best results possible. In fact, we’re so dedicated to achieving success that if you don’t pass your qualification within two years of enrolling with us, we’ll let you re-sit the whole study period for free.
Our distance learning courses are fully accredited by Ofqual and recognised worldwide, and we offer personalised study routes so you can tailor your learning to your specific career goals.
IoSCM Level 5 student Juliet Smith shared her experience of studying with us over on the DLC blog, and had the following to say about distance learning:
“There is a great deal of merit in completing a distance learning course and much to be gained. Distance learning offered me great flexibility around a busy work life and family commitments and meant that I did not need to dramatically change my current lifestyle.
Distance learning provides educational and training opportunities to those who are not able to pursue on-site study or a full-time course. This is extremely beneficial for working professionals who cannot afford to leave full-time jobs or who, due to family obligations, cannot attend regular, on-site study.
As a DLC student you can complete coursework in your own time via a computer and submit work for assessment via the online learning portal. You can do this anywhere and at your own pace, which gives you a lot of flexibility.
As you do not have to be physically present in a conventional classroom you have the freedom to set your own timetable and complete work at your convenience. In addition, the internet provides a world of resources that can help in the pursuit of your studies. There are many opportunities to watch online lectures, participate in student forums and access other learning materials, including libraries and journals.”
