Studying from home | With NCC Online


It has been one year today since I handed in my last assignment for my English Literature and Language Degree. I attended my graduation ceremony later on in the year. I can’t quite believe it has been a year, where has the time gone? It has flown by, it only feels like yesterday I was researching endlessly and writing and editing my assignments.

I loved my degree, even though stressful at times I wouldn’t change it and actually recently I have been  missing studying so much. I miss that familiar feeling of working towards a deadline and the satisfaction that comes with handing it in. Of course until next time. I am used to working to deadlines now with blogging work but it is not the same as an English Degree. With my English assignments the language was formal and I was expected to write in prose, with blogging the language is more direct, more personal and I enjoy that.ncc

I have been in contact with NCC a home learning provider and I found a course I would be very interested in enrolling on.  I am going to be doing the level 3 Teaching Assistant Course. NCC provide home learning paper and online courses in many different sectors, beauty, teaching, accountancy and more. Which is great if you are wanting to do a little something from home, add to your skills or learn something new. For me it is a little learning something new and also adding to the skills I already have.

I love working from home, and studying is no different. I much prefer doing it from home because it fits my lifestyle perfectly. With two young children a home learning course is perfect for me. I did my degree from home with The Open University and absolutely loved it. I am very much looking forward to the course with NCC. Their course’s are very affordable and they offer finance options too if you would prefer. I am going to be writing a full review of my NCC course, and I look forward to sharing my home learning experience with you.

I am a huge advocate of home learning because I think it offers so much to full time workers who want to expand their skill set as well as to mothers or fathers who are wanting a career change or to learn something new. I know that my previous home learning study opened so many opportunities for me and gave me the confidence I was lacking before. So I look forward to my course with NCC.

When I received my log in details I couldn’t wait to have a look at the course dashboard. So far I am so impressed, my initial thoughts on the online dashboard are that it is clear and concise, everything is laid out clearly and it is easy to navigate around the dashboard. This is great as it can be stressful enough when starting a course from home.  The fact that the dashboard has been designed for ease of use and is simple to navigate really helps with organising yourself into a good routine as everything you need for the course is easy to find and straight forward. ncc dashboard

I look forward to starting my first module.

I would love to know if you have studied from home and how you found it?

    I’m pretty sure it was NCC I did my A Level in English with back in 2005/6, then I’ve done a few OU courses but couldn’t afford to continue unfortunately. Congratulations on your degree, your graduation photo is lovely!xx

    I’ve never studied from home but I did consider it. I never went to college because it’s not necessary in Germany.

    I really want to do something like this. I never went to college or uni and feel like a uneducated bum. I really want to be an inspiration to my girls. Good luck with your studies.
