WCG (Warwickshire College Group) is now offering over fifty distance learning courses across a range of subjects, from Horticulture and Writing to Business and Psychology.

With each course requiring just 20hrs of study, these are ideal tasters for anyone interested in discovering more about a specific subject area, and for hobbyists, are comprehensive enough to take their skills to the next level.

Whether you are seeking to continue your professional development, or simply want to take an opportunity to learn new skills, there are plenty of courses to choose from at our website: www.wcg.ac.uk/distancelearning, including:

    Featuring courses on animal health and welfare, beekeeping, caring for chickens, horse and dogs, and animal behaviour.

  • Horticulture
    With nearly twenty courses, these courses range from essential gardening topics such as lawn care, indoor plants and garden design, to more specialist subjects such as aquaponics, agricultural sustainability, and land restoration.
  • Psychology
    These courses provide insight and education for people interested in learning more about topics such as stress management, addiction, relationship counselling and behaviour profiling.

All courses are delivered online, so you can sign-up and start when you want, learn from the comfort of your own home, and study at your own pace.

  • Managing Events
