Four easy steps to e-learning
Step 1: Find a Course
Whether you know what course you want or simply would like to browse, it's easy! Here are some ways you can quickly find the information you need:
You can click on "courses" on the top navigation. This will show a complete list of all our courses, ordered by our best sellers and new releases.
You can enter a search term in the "search box" at the top of the courses page.
Alternatively, you can browse courses by category, for example safeguarding.
STEP 2: Buy the course
When you've found the course you are looking for, you can make a secure payment online via PayPal with most popular credit/debit cards, even if you do not have a PayPal account.
Simply click on the "Add to basket" button and have your card or PayPal details ready for the checkout.
If you wish to purchase multiples of courses or would like to be invoiced, you can e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call our support team on 01943 605 976
STEP 3: Take the course
Once your purchase has gone through you will be taken to a login screen. If you are a new learner you will be asked to create an account for our learning management system. If you are an existing learner you will be able to log in with your email and password.
A few things you might want to note as you are going through the training are:
You will get a better learner experience if you have sound enabled. Most computers come with built-in speakers these days, but the narration will generally be written in text at the bottom of the screen for you to read if you don't have sound turned on.
If you have a very poor quality internet connection, then disabling sound will help, as even very short sound files are quite large downloads. The course is interactive and you may need to click on parts of the screen before you can advance. This will be obvious as the narration and text will tell you what to do or the links will pulse and flash. The system will remember where you left off and take you back there, but you can go over any part of it as many times as you want to and take as long as you want.
Some courses allow you to write your own notes for each page and print them off at the end or simply store them to access later any time you log in to your record.
When you get to the end, you will be presented with an assessment to check your understanding. Don't worry; you can take this assessment three times at no extra cost. Our only concern is that when you have finished you are competent.
STEP 4: Your Certificate
For most courses you will be able to print your own certificate at the end of the assessment. However, this does vary. For example, our Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene courses include the option of a posted certificate. If you have chosen this option the certificate is printed here at Virtual College and posted out within two working days.
Bulk discounts are available on purchases of 10 or more courses.
