Distance Learning College

Jeanne Said:

Which college has the fastest and cheapest distance learning program?

We Answered:

Charter Oak State College in Connecticut is an online distance learning college that is known for being one of the most affordable online colleges, probably sue to the fact that they are a public college. There is an tuition comparison chart on their site ( http://www.charteroak.edu/Prospective/Tu… ) that shows they are cheaper than Excelsior per credit.

Charter Oak can be very fast, as they will accept almost any college credit you already have towards a Charter Oak degree. If you come in with college credits from many different schools, Charter Oak can aggregate them, and you'd already be close to a degree. It's possible to get a degree from Charter Oak State College by only taking one class that's actually from Charter Oak.

They have a simple process ( http://www.charteroak.edu/Prospective/Ap… ) and you can get started right away.

Qualifications
On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:

Qualification 1: Teaching Assistant Diploma

Teaching Assistant Diploma issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges, entitling you to use the letters SAC Dip after your name.

Qualification 2: Level 3 Teaching Assistant Award

At the end of this course successful learners will also receive a level 3 NCFE Award certificate of achievement. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and A Levels are at level 3).

This award has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements. Accreditation by NCFE is a guarantee of quality. It means that this learning programme has been scrutinised and approved by an independent panel of experienced educational professionals and is quality audited biannually by NCFE.



The second qualification is definitely accreditted by a body that sets standards for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Sheila Said:

Is the Stonebridge distance learning college accredited?

We Answered:

Sonebridge does not offer degrees. It offers trade type courses such as beauty therapy, counselling etc. These would be certificates which could be equivalent to a trade school or similar.

They are accredited in the UK for the courses they offer, but it is up to you to determine whether the course that you are interested in would be acceptable to employers or as an entry point to further studies.

They do have important and valuable industry connections:

Jesus Said:

does anyone know a distance learning college which will enable me to do chemistry at a level?

We Answered:

No there isn't a distance learning college that does this but you don't say where you are going - it is possible that you can do this locally. Or, take one of the Revision Guides with you and go through it, they are pretty comprehensive although obviously you would have to return for the exam.

Alternatively, take a look at the Open University options. They have a Science Foundation course that is recognised by British universities and which is at about A'level standard.
