A lot of our regular users already work or have family and lifestyle commitments, so the option of enrolling in a traditional college is not appealing to them. The flexibility that Home Learning College can offer provides an ideal solution.
London (PRWeb UK) March 15, 2009
Home Learning College, the UK's leading vocational home study college, has announced a new strategic partnership with totaljobs.com. The reciprocal affiliation means that Home Learning college students have immediate access to thousands of jobs once they complete their studies, while totaljobs users can access a wide range of home study courses, all offering employer-recognised professional qualifications.
The partnership takes the form of a dedicated home study microsite found under the 'Career Centre' tab on the totaljobs website. Clicking through takes the viewer to a course directory, course selection tools, an opportunity to meet tutors online, a demonstration of the online learning support and student case studies showing how home study courses has benefited others in an increasingly competitive job market.
totaljobs users enrolling with Home Learning College will also have access to a unique home study tool, a Virtual Learning Community - launched just last year and already boasting 65,000 active students. The utility allows those learning from home to interact with tutors and fellow students in a secure and content rich environment, enhancing the learning experience and facilitating course completion and pass rate.
John Salt, Website Director at totaljobs, comments:

Home Learning College is a clear market leader in the home study arena, with a strong track record of delivering high quality courses so this affiliation is an obvious synergy with what our users are seeking."

Greg Gaffney, Marketing Director at Home Learning College says:
"Our range of courses and qualifications are designed to facilitate career change or progression, so the partnership with totaljobs is a logical fit.
