The Value of Time

Posted on: August 21st, 2020 by Admin

Working from home has almost become the norm and while The Open College have always been predominantly an online distance learning college and were very well prepared for the Covid-19 pandemic, we envisage that remote learning will also become the norm with more and more educational institutions and the government recognising the importance of flexibility when it comes to learning and education.

The pandemic has been a challenge, an eye opener, an absolute game changer which has forced us to re-evaluate what we really value – the importance of having more time with our family and friends and indeed with ourselves. Time is something we can never get back and using it wisely is the number one thing that everyone seems to have valued during this crazy time.

The Open College recognised very early on the importance of this precious commodity and envisaged the need for a more flexible way of learning for people with families, early school leavers, people who are already working or who just need to upskill without the need to attend classes over a long period of time. We have worked tirelessly to make sure that all our courses are professionally developed and that our students are happy with how the courses are run. The support and drive have been there from the very start to make it a success and continues to be at the heart of our operations.

We have also just launched a new and very exciting Degree programme in Health & Social Care in which would give people from all over the country the chance to apply for a well-recognised Degree programme and complete it from the comfort of their own home while being as job ready as possible following completion. We aim to extend on these Degree courses on an ongoing basis.

If you want to complete a course with one of the most experienced online Irish colleges then please drop us a line and we can discuss your options with you.
