    My typing speed and errors were worse than I thought but interesting.
    If you are not part of the solution then you must be part of the problem.

    Udemy.com do lots of free ones. Best to follow "free Udemy courses" facebook page which flags up loads of free ones.

    Free (fully-funded) Level 2 distance learning courses
    • #7
    • 25th Mar 19, 12:05 AM
    There are a number of fully-funded distance learning courses available at the moment at Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE grade 4+/old A*-C). They're for adults over the age of 19 and are free so long as you have at least a Level 2 qualification already, although if you don't complete the course they reserve the right to charge an admin fee which I think is around 125.

    Courses are mostly in the areas of health and social care, and business -- some are the same as Vision2Learn offer but there are some additional ones at different colleges. You can generally choose to do the courses entirely paper-based or entirely online, or a mixture (i.e. paper-based learning materials and online assessment submission). The colleges I'm aware of that do them are as follows (annoyingly my post won't go through with the links in it, but if you Google "free distance learning level 2" and the institution name you should get straight to the right page):

    Bridgwater & Taunton College
    Walsall College
    The Skills Network
    New College Swindon
    BMet
    Stoke on Trent College
    Newbury College (this place also has some free Level 3 courses)
    Leicester College
    Sunderland College
    Shrewsbury College
    Sunderland College

    There is a mountain of university courses which you can audit. Try searching opencourseware universities . I did the first of the basic Spanish courses at MIT which go to undergraduate level. (They claim to have about 2400 courses where you can listen to the lectures and more). I also did a good language course from Oslo University which is actively monitored by their staff.
