Are you looking for more clarification on online/e-learning? You are not alone! We have the answers you are looking for!


With all the changes in the world recently, it has been significant that the world of health and safety training adapt with it.


New learning methods have entirely changed and eased the way learners can study for their future and change their lives!


This blog will outline the six main reasons why online learning is becoming increasingly popular, and you should check it out.


1, Convenience 


If 2020 taught us all one thing, it was that convenience is becoming more and more critical. Online learning is studying with the highest, flexible level of comfort there is.


You study at your pace, learning at your speed. With 24/7 access to all materials, you will always have the power to do whatever you want, whenever you want. 


If, like most, your life is increasingly busy at the moment, worry not. Online learning bridges that gap for you. There are no lessons or times to meet (except assessments/exams); instead, the learning is tailored around you to fit your schedule and lifestyle.


2, Independence


Online learning is perfect for a more independent person. If you prefer self-study and learning on your terms, Online learning is something you should consider. 


Just remember that with this level of independence, you must be able to motivate yourself and prepare yourself for the exams/assessments that lie ahead. 


All learning materials will be accessible, but you are responsible for learning them. 


3, Access


As explored above, with any Online course, learners will have access to all materials 24/7. Giving them ultimate on-demand access to a library of learning materials, webinars and messageboards.


Beyond just education, learners of any Online course will join an ever-growing community of learners all looking to take that exciting next step in their careers. 


4, Safety


It only seems appropriate that learners study the best health safety practices under the best health and safety protocols available. Online learning provides safe and quality learning. 


As a learner, if you prefer non-classroom learning, Online learning is the obvious alternative. 


5, Control


Online learning provides the highest level of control, with assistance at your fingertips whenever you want it.


One of the most significant benefits of the Online format is that, yes, independent learners will relish the structure of the format. But you are never alone! Once you join a course, you will be one of many learners all in the same boat.


Help each other, assist in achieving all your goals and make friends for life!


6, Cost


No one wants to give away their life savings, but you also want quality for your buck. That's a massive advantage for the online learning format.


It could vary from course to course, but the Online learning format shouldn't exceed £2500. If you were to compare this against a University degree, the value for money is staggering! 


Always remember that there are many flexible ways to pay or fund your Online course. Make sure you research the funding options!



So, if you are a more independent learner yearning for more control in your study, do not settle. Our Online learning options offer flexible, quality learning for all courses and qualifications. If Online is your method, embrace it and seize your future!
