Benefits of adult learning via home study
There are also some specific benefits to earning qualifications through home study:
Flexibility: With home study or distance learning, you can learn wherever and whenever you want, and you can fit your study in around other commitments – especially important for many mature students who may have jobs, families, or other important responsibilities.
Home study helps improve time management and organisational skills: Home study can be more demanding than sitting in a traditional classroom – you have to be highly self-motivated. But you’ll be a more effective person when you’ve completed the course. Successful completion of a home study course shows a real commitment to self-improvement, which is bound to be recognised as a valuable quality by your existing or future employer.
