"LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES - courses & qualifications demystified"

Our LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES materials provide information, advice and guidance about how to enhance your skills and progress to higher level qualificlations. You'll find everything there from making study choices, to financial help for study plus information sheets that simplify everything for you.

If you're a regular user of LO, you'll notice that we have now widened our remit to include much more about all qualifictions at all levels. We're also making sure that we include advice for young people, particularly now that the full-time education leaving age is changing to 18 by 2014.
