Flexible Learning

What is Flexible Learning?

An alternative to taught classes they are aimed at students who want regular study (2+ hrs p/w) but cannot commit to a specific programme. Courses cover a range of subjects but mostly focus on basic computing and software applications, click here to view courses available. They are typically delivered by self-led study using the training materials provided.
