Although we provide on-line, home study/distance learning courses, we are still very active in guiding, supporting and tutoring you throughout your course. Our courses are not just about the courseware – but in providing you with a flexible and extensive range of tutor and assessor support ongoing throughout the course.
Your contact with your tutors will be via email enabling you to submit assignments and assessments you have completed as well as ask questions as and when it suits you to study.
You can access your course through our Lewis Learning Hub – which is password protected – from anywhere giving you maximum flexibility as to when and where you study.
Courseware is made up of a variety of learning materials such as practical tasks, reading material, instructional/demonstration videos and audio files, designed and written by the College.
The one-to-one tuition style allows us to tailor your course for your needs, providing extra support where required to ensure you are always progressing effectively with your studying. It also means you can fast track through modules if you have prior knowledge – the pace of the course is your pace – you decide.
There is an overall course time frame within which to complete your course – giving you an effective structure to your training. Course time frames have been extended to include time out for holidays, illnesses etc already “built in” providing further flexibility.
Some students like to study quickly and complete their course in a short time whilst others are studying and working plus have a family and prefer to adjust their studying to fit in with these commitments. Students can vary their studying to suit.
Facebook, LinkedIn, Phone and Skype
We have a dedicated college Facebook page and LinkedIn page where we provide a plethora of useful articles relevant to Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers and Administrators, blogs from various members of the college team and we also have a bit of fun to help give you a smile in your working week.
You also have the option of speaking with your tutor on the phone or via Skype on pre-booked appointments if you find it easier to discuss your queries and questions directly with your tutor.
Quality of Service
We are great believers in ensuring we provide a professional and responsive service to all of our students ensuring they can progress quickly and effectively with their studying.
We therefore aim to:
- Answers questions and queries the same day they are received or early the following working day.
- Provide marked work and feedback to submitted assignments within 2 working days.
- Provide marked assessments and feedback to submitted assessments and exams within 7 days.
We also provide careers advice and support whilst applying for jobs as well as a mentor role whilst you are studying with us.
We are usually in touch with most of our students on a weekly or some even a daily basis depending on how intensive they are studying. This helps us to build up a good working relationship with our students and promotes a friendly and helpful relationship.
We all look forward in helping you to be successful in your careers.
