Distance learning in land-based industries

DISTANCE and open learning courses are available at a limited number of
places. Below are listed the contacts for correspondence courses relating to the land-based industries.

It would also be wise to contact your local agricultural college, as many are investigating distance learning options at the moment.

For the latest information on all distance learning available look at the website www.distance-learning.co.uk

For practical accreditation on-site, it would be worth investigating NVQ
