Training centres, organisations or schooling institutions that actually deliver training to participants (whether they have enrolled on an individual basis or have been enrolled by another organisation). Institutions that only find or provide support are not considered as providers. Note: This should be compared with the definition of ‘Adult learning provider’ in level 1.
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.
