Communication Skills

My Distance Learning College


There must be many people who found conventional English language classes at school difficult and who have now taken jobs where face-to-face situations with customers and clients demand a certain facility with the language. It is for such individuals that this course is intended.

The student will probably already be appreciative of the fact that we spend a very large part of our waking lives communicating in one form or another. Therefore, it goes without saying that the more effective we are as communicators, the more effective we are as human beings.

The course content should not seem entirely unfamiliar to the student. After all, you have probably been communicating by speech since you were two years old and by writing since you were about six years old.

This course covers topics such as:

  • Defining communication
  • Avoiding ambiguity
  • Writing efficiently
  • Effective listening and receiving communications
  • Communicating by telephone
  • Writing letters


On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:

Communication Skills Certificate

Communication Skills Certificate issued by My Distance Learning College, entitling you to use the letters SAC Cert after your name.

NCFE Level 3 Communication Skills Award

This Course leads to an NCFE Level 3 Award Certificate for successful learners. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and A Levels are at level 3). In accrediting the program at level 3, NCFE attests that its learning outcomes are at an equivalent level to a level 3 national qualification.

This award has been designed by My Distance Learning College to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements. Accreditation by NCFE is a guarantee of quality. It means that this learning program has been scrutinized and approved by an independent panel of experienced educational professionals and is quality audited biannually by NCFE.


After each lesson there will be a question paper, which needs to be completed and submitted to your personal tutor for marking. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal tutor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course.
