Making learning and skills accessible

The Skills Network is one of the most successful distance learning providers, offering over 150 courses in 30 countries around the world.

We upskill more than 35,000 learners in the UK alone each year, and we also work with over 5,000 organisations and 500 colleges and independent training providers to deliver training to students and employees.

Distance learning is a way of learning remotely from your home or overseas without the need to attend any classes or have regular face to face contact with a Tutor. It allows learners to study at a place and time to suit them, meaning they can learn alongside other commitments such as work, family and hobbies.

Alongside our award winning e-learning platform EQUAL, we offer a wide range of services to individuals, organisations and colleges around the world.
