“I studied at home through a distance learning course. The course was very easy to access and follow on Google classrooms. I worked my way through each module and any problems or queries were quickly answered by email from the supportive tutors at Middlesbrough College. 

“I would definitely recommend studying this course, I didn’t realise how easy it could be to learn a whole new subject that I hadn’t looked at before, online at home.

“The support from Middlesbrough College couldn’t have been better, from the first enquiry email through to booking and passing the exam, very prompt replies and encouraging all the way.

“I am currently furloughed from my part time non-essential store assistant job, and have been on and off for a year, this is what made me think to learn new skills which hopefully will lead to a new full time career. I would encourage anyone who isn’t working or who is working and wants to up-skill to consider studying for a MOS Distance Learning programme.

“The skills that I have learnt are definitely beneficial for my career goals! There are a number of roles that ask for Microsoft Word and Excel skills so it is fantastic that I now have qualifications to prove my skills in this. 

“To be honest I enjoyed everything about the course, to look first at a excel screen not knowing anything about it, to within no time at all knowing what every function is for. I also really enjoyed the GMetrix practice tests- these help a lot in timing and practising functions you need help with.

“I decided to study at Middlesbrough College to expand my digital and computer skills and I’ve loved every second of it!”
