Following the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the closure of colleges across the UK in March, Mindful education offered our Level 2 and Level 3 Accounting courses to all UK colleges, free of charge. This allowed learners who had previously been studying face-to-face classes at college (including 16-18 students, apprentices and part-time adult students) to continue their studies with minimal disruption.
Over 100 colleges have taken up this offer and we have welcomed over 5,500 students. We recently asked these students to complete a short survey and have had over 700 responses – here are some of the comments we’ve received.
What our Students Say
Here is a selection of the comments made by students:

“Overall the course is fantastic with in depth knowledge.”
“Thank you so much, I would have given up studying if I didn’t have your amazing videos and all the questions to practice and consolidate my knowledge!”

Some Stats from our Survey
Extension of the ‘free of charge’ offer
Following discussions with students and tutors, we have made the decision to extend the free of charge access to our courses for colleges and training providers until 18th September. We are currently supporting over 5,500 learners from over 100 colleges through this offer and we are keen to continue to provide support as students and apprentices prepare for exams and assessments that have been delayed by the lockdown and college closures.
