The Association's AGM - in person! and future plans

Certificates of Merit

The Association of Distance Learning Colleges awards Certificates of Merit to students who have captured the imagination of their course providers. Member Colleges may nominate any student they choose, but an appropriate candidate might be someone who has:

  • retrained by distance learning to get back into employment
  • achieved an outstanding exam or course result
  • overcome personal difficulties to achieve his/her goal

We are pleased to present some of their stories, and hope they will inspire others.

Company Certificates of Merit

A new development – we are now awarding Certificates of Merit to companies and organisations that use distance provision to train and upskill their employees. Courses can be designed specially for a company’s specific requirements.  Tailor-made solutions to in-house learning requirements can be remarkable effective.

Certificates of Merit for Tutors and Teams
During the pandemic all our Member Colleges, their staff and tutors, worked heroically in sometimes very difficult circumstances to keep courses going and keep students learning.
We have therefore introduced a Certificate of Merit for Colleges and their teams, to recognise their achievements. The first of these went to Oxbridge’s GCSE and A Level teams, to celebrate the outstanding results of their students.
