How does distance learning work?

Distance learning means that you study on your own, at home and in the workplace. The Open University’s unique style of distance learning is called supported ‘Open Learning’. It’s ‘open’ because you learn in your own time – you will read material supplied on our resource website, complete online assessment activities on your eportfolio and receive regular support from your assessor and VQAC.

You will also need support from your line manager or workplace supporter.

Can I complete a vocational qualification without someone visiting me in the workplace?

For the majority of qualifications we offer, you will normally be observed in the work place.

The only exceptions are the Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment and the Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practice of Learning and Development, both of these awards are knowledge-only and do not require you to be observed.
