Why should I study an online course with MOL Learn? 

Today’s labour market is the most flexible, dynamic and opportunistic than it has ever been before. The Office for National Statistics states that in the time period January to March 2018, the employment rate for people was 75.6%, up from 74.8% for a year earlier and the highest since comparable records began in 1971. These figures demonstrate the growing labour market and the range of opportunities available for those who want to improve their skills and take advantage of flexible working. 

Online studying is a natural choice for anyone looking to secure a qualification whilst juggling the day to day realities of life, family, work and study.  Undertaking an online course can be a brilliant way to learn and gain a qualification in a way that suits you the most.
