Online learning

Directly through Community learn, you can access online, distance learning. Our partner organisations offer hundreds of different courses that can be taken online, at your own pace or in a structured way. Because these are Community’s partner organisations, our members can access them free of charge or for a reduced rate.

Take a look at our different partners, what they offer and register, below:

The Workers’ Educational Association

Our partnership with the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) brings high quality, professional and accessible courses to the hearts of our members’ communities. From skills workshops to community learning, they provide practical and tailored learning solutions to where members live. You can find out more about the courses WEA offer here.

The Skills Network

Community has signed an agreement to work with The Skills Network, to give our members, friends and colleagues access to a wide range of free, fully accredited, courses.

The Skills Network is one of the most successful providers of online courses and qualifications in the UK, and their distance learning platform is a way of learning remotely without needing to attend classroom lessons.

This allows learners to study at their own pace, in their own home or workplace learning centre, at a time that fits around people’s busy lives. Learners have the freedom to revisit areas of the course as little or as much as they need without having to keep the same pace as others. There is also full support from tutors via email.

There are over 30 fully funded Level 2 courses to choose from covering:

  • Business and Leadership
  • Wellbeing and Mental Health
  • Health and Social Care
  • Digital Skills and Marketing
  • Hospitality and Retail
  • Sustainability
  • Employability
