A range of activities outside formal educational institutions designed to identify and attract non-learners, in order to encourage them to enrol in education and training programmes. (Note: see also ‘Hard to engage’).
A well defined activity which has elements: curriculum, registration, tutoring and tests but takes place via postal correspondence or electronic media, linking instructors or students who are not together in a classroom. For this there is interaction between the teacher and the student, although it doesn’t happen immediately but with a delay. When the activity is recognised by the National Framework of Qualifications it should be classified as formal education, otherwise as non-formal. Note: This provides detail additional to the definition of ‘Distance learning’ in level 1.
Vocational training given in the normal work situation. It may constitute the whole training or be combined with off-the-job training.
