How to Write

Learn how to write by distance learning.

  • What is a noun?
  • What is a verb or adjective?
  • How do you punctuate, write more clearly and communicate more effectively? 
  • Learn to express your thoughts faster and with greater confidence.

This external study course allows you to better understand all of these things which will help in both your business and private life.  It will also help you to write job applications.

If you've never developed your ability to write to the extent you would like; this course could be a perfect way for you to do that.

As the course is self paced and you have your own tutor, you can deal with issues and master things in a home study environment where you might have otherwise been left lagging behind everyone else in a classroom.

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
