What I would highlight: Studying from home while working is a good combination with UK Open College. They are really flexible and tutors are very supportive. the structure and layout was quite easy to understand. Sometimes the test questions were repetitive. But all in all the structure and content were great.
What could be improved: Nothing.

What I would highlight: I had some doubts about enrolling because I had never taken a course like this. I am not so young anymore, so, I was too embarrassing of going to school again. About this point I must say UK Open College was an excellent choice to learn how to work with children and particularly ones with learning difficulties. My initial apprehension has been overcome since I have a routine now which suits my circumstances. I feel totally confident to send an email to my tutor with my doubts and get so quick answers. Better late than never to study!
