About us


We are eCollege, your digital gateway to further education and training, funded by SOLAS. Our mission is to give you excellent online learning experiences,  tailored to enhance your skills and empower your personal and career growth. 

We work with learning providers to bring you free, part-time online programmes in fields that are highly sought after by employers, essential for thriving in the digital era, and designed to be enjoyable and engaging. 

We offer a range of courses to suit your needs, whether that is formal accreditation supported by online tutors, or self-directed courses to help you build your skills and knowledge. You can join some of our courses straightaway, while some offer you a fixed start date so you can experience the course as part of a group of learners. Dive into our course catalogue to start learning! 

What is included in your course:

  • If your course requires software, this is included and available for the duration of your course
  • If your course is accredited, the cost of the online exam and certification is included in your course 
  • If your course has tutor support, live tutorials will always be available as a recorded version so you can study and progress at a time that suits you. 

"I can fit in my eCollege courses because I can do them when it suits me - it's flexible, it's free and there is always someone there to help me out."
