In these unprecedented times a great many people are looking to acquire new skills or a new qualification to help them through lockdown, or provide their careers with a boost once lockdown ends.

The internet is awash with so-called course providers offering cheap and cheerful courses in just about anything you can think of.

While some of those courses may provide a very basic grounding, most are simply an accumulation of videos or words – in other words, they offer very little in the way of actual tuition. Importantly, they’re also courses from providers who are not accredited to recognised schools or colleges and therefore unable, despite what they say, to offer a real qualification.

The Creative Design School is different. Okay, our course fees may cost a little more, but the qualification you receive at the end of the course is a real qualification. It’s therefore something that can help you in career, or open doors to a new career altogether.Our approach is simply to be the online equivalent of a bricks-and-mortar college, with real tutors giving one-to-one tuition.

On our courses, you are expected to study, submit written material and be judged on it, in exactly the same way you would at a physical college. Making learning seamless, our tutors are always on hand, both in formal weekly sessions and informally when you need advice. Our courses are therefore interactive and, yes, challenging. That allows you to learn real skills, and allows us to award you with a real qualification.

During lockdown, you may be tempted to sign up for a cheap-and-cheerful course. But the old adage applies – if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It might while away a few hours, but it won’t do you or your career any good. When lockdown ends, your new normal will simply be your old normal.

But if you’re serious about wanting to acquire new skills and a real qualification, why not have a look at what we offer?

We have courses across the creative spectrum. We have the tutors to help you fulfil your creative learning journey, with a timetable that suits you and your particular circumstances. The only thing missing from our courses is the hassle of getting to and from our online college and whatever the new normal looks like, that’s a safer, more convenient and educationally better option.
