Hi All,

Found an interesting video from my distance learning provider who seem to be partners with AAT and give guidance to people looking to enroll on a AAT course.

I myself found I'm capable, but are you? For those of you stuck in limbo and can't decide if you'd rahter go uni/college or enroll on a distance learning course.. this video might help

    That's odd because I thought that the Home Learning College had had their AAT accreditation removed.

    The magazine is poorly edited.

    All this news is well out of date and very uninformative.

    Did they really? About bloody time! I don't think I ever heard someone say something good about them lol

    but they are advertised in the latest AAT magazine. Would they be if they had it removed?

    Beat me to it Princess.

    There are enough horror stories floating around to make any organisation suspicious.

    Hi Coojee,

    This is false, after a quick check I can assure you that Home Learning College have not had their AAT accreditation removed.

    (had me worried there :o)

    A pity. I have never understood how the AAT could associate themselves with HLC. Qualitywise they are so far beneath all the other providers it's absolutely shocking. Add to this the hard sell techniques from very pushy salesmen and ridiculously high fees and you have something more akin to a scam than an accredited provider.

    I speak from experience here having mistakenly used them for Level 3. Hindsight is a wonderful thing - a five minute search on the internet would have made me run a mile!

    Damn! I almost ran for the phone to ask for a refund from HLC. I sometimes wonder if AAT moderates these forums as the HLC are such an embarrassment to represent the AAT!

    Sorry for this. I was remembering an old thread where someone had a problem with HLC and the AAT had responded to it. When the OP said that HLC had had their accreditation removed I assumed this meant the information had come from the AAT but when I re read the thread I could see that they hadn't actually said this.
