Distance Learning Courses

We offer a range of free online Distance Learning Courses which can be studied from anywhere in the UK. These popular courses enable you to study for and gain recognised accreditation that is of value to your work and personal development.

These courses are for those aged over 19 years and usually free*.  What’s more our courses are accredited by NCFE and CACHE, acknowledged leaders in the field of distance learning.

You have the flexibility to complete the course in your own time online in the comfort of your own home or as part of a work-based training programme. You’ll also have an assigned, qualified assessor with plenty of guidance and feedback by email, post and/or online (paper based course material is available on request).

You are allocated up to 26 weeks depending on the number of assessments the course has in order to complete and assessment is via completion of answering questions online or in workbooks.

We offer regular start dates throughout the year, so you can apply any time. 

For further enquiries please contact us at Ask@bmet or call us on 0121 446 4545.

*Courses are funded if you are over 19 years old, with a level 2 qualification and have lived in the UK for over 3 years.
