Online Courses


Have you been furloughed, lost your job or decided it’s time to move on to a new career with better prospects? Do you work as a volunteer and would like to improve your skills to help others? Wirral Met College can offer you help.

The College has launched a wide range of new online fully accredited courses that will help support you to retrain, gain new skills and build your confidence to get a new job or improve your career prospects.

Free* level 2 courses leading to qualifications linked to career routes are available. They include online support from a trainer/assessor who will guide you every step of the way, mark your assessments and give you feedback, similar to studying in college. You will have a window of time to complete your qualification but the benefits of studying online is that you’ll have the flexibility to fit your learning in around your life and home commitments; study when you want, progress as quickly as you want; you’re in control.

If time is limited and you’re looking for short professional development courses to refresh your skills and/or need specific support for your job role, there are flexible four hour courses which are automatically assessed online and certificated, costing as little as £30.

NEW! You could be eligible to take a free qualification at Level 3 (equivalent to A Levels) as part of the Government's #LifetimeSkillsGuarantee. Find out more.

*FREE if you are - aged 19+ and live in the Liverpool City Region. If you are aged 19+ and live outside the Liverpool City Region, you are unemployed/in receipt of eligible benefits, or in work earning less than £17,004 annual gross salary, or you are aged 19-23 and have not already achieved a full level 2 qualification, some courses are FREE. Please note, you will be required to provide information including furloughed status, if you have a degree and your wage bracket, in order to be eligible for free courses.
