What I would highlight: 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.
