  • UK Open College was truly sober with great, clear materials given to lead you through the course. The mentor was knowledgable and accommodating with input and reacted quickly to inquiries when raised. In general the experience was great and I would prescribe the course to anybody who wants to end up as a HLTA.

  • I have just completed the level 4 higher level teaching assistant course. This was the first occasion when I have attempted the distance learning alternative and it worked truly well for me. I was to a great degree inspired with the correspondence and productivity of everybody I came in contact in UK Open College, particularly my guide Kerry Steele, who was 110% steady and gave me significant and astute input rapidly to every task. I would joyfully suggest UK Open College.
