FAQs

What courses can I study?

Reed Courses advertises a large variety of courses which are delivered by a range of learning providers. The courses on offer vary in time duration and study method, with many offering tutor support. Whether you want to study for a regulated qualification, or take a course which provides CPD points/hours or qualifications, there are a number of learning options available.

What is a qualification?

A qualification can only be delivered by an awarding body which is regulated by a government body. The one you will most commonly see on site is OFQUAL, the government regulating body for England - but there is a different regulating body for each country in the United Kingdom, as well as the Republic of Ireland. Each regulating body maintains a list of the qualifications it regulates.

What methods of study are available?

In addition to free courses, Reed Courses also has plenty of paid for online courses, designed to meet all kinds of learning goals and to suit a range of preferred study methods.

What free courses are available?

Reed Courses advertises a variety of free online courses. Alternatively you’ll be able to enrol on an online course of your choosing, and study entirely online. If you’d prefer an in-person learning experience, you could take a classroom course where you’ll be taught in a classroom at a given location. Reed Courses also advertises distance learning courses and in-company courses from a variety of learning providers.
