Safety First When You Learn with Us

Here’s the latest update on how Covid is impacting our courses, April 2021

We’re all hoping that lockdown restrictions will start to ease soon. At On Course South West, we’re already planning how we can keep you safe as we return to face-to-face education.

While most of our courses will remain online for the time being, we hope to be able to start a phased return to classroom-based learning after Easter.

This gradual return to the classroom may involve Covid testing for both staff and learners. Schools and other educational settings are using lateral flow tests, which are easy to use and provide quick results. When the time comes, we’ll make sure learners and staff know exactly what’s needed. We’ll share updates here and talk directly to learners about specific arrangements.

Taking an Exam?
If you’re expecting to sit an exam after Easter, our Exams Officer will be in touch with all the details on attending Hyde Park House and the measures in place to keep you safe.

Above all, we are here to help you build the skills you need now and for the future, whatever it brings. We are doing everything we can to make sure our learning environments are safe, and that your learning can continue, whatever is going on around us.

Email us at or call us on 01752 660713 if you need any further information.

I managed to pass my GCSE, probably one of the oldest learners at age 64. Now I’m looking to get back into learning and hopefully take an A level in maths.”


Studying English Functional Skills, I now have an improved confidence and I can walk around with my head held high.


Helped me find the real me. I now have the confidence and the qualification to find myself a job. Thank you to my tutors who believed in me and pushed me to my limits it sure has paid off.


I have now passed both my functional skills courses and am currently studying for GCSE’s. I must admit it’s much better and I am way more confident.”


Everybody’s really welcoming, and nobody judges you, and you can be who you want to be. It’s just a great way to get going.


Just started the Introduction to Counselling Course & it is excellent!


Really enjoyed the Introduction to Training course. The trainer’s style was creative and engaging. Would recommend to anyone.


I recently attended two of the free workshops and I was amazed how much I learnt, the tutors were very passionate about the craft they were teaching and the fact we all got to bring items home that we made was so wonderful. I would recommend to anybody.


I’ve just received my results and have passed both my GCSE English & Maths. I left school in 1988. Getting the chance to redo them was a great opportunity for me. Such a good feeling to have passed, onwards and upwards for me.
