Learning Group – Interior Decorating Courses via Distance Learning
The Learning Group offers numerous courses in interior decorating via distance learning. This means that you will be able to enrol for and complete your course from the comfort of your own home.
Here follows a list of some of the benefits of studying interior decorating through distance learning:
6 Benefits of distance learning
The Learning Group brings quality education to your doorstep. It doesn’t matter where in South Africa you live; you will have a complete and satisfying college experience.
Distance learning allows you to study from home through different means of correspondence. Your course material will be posted to you and you will have constant access to a personal tutor via e-mail, telephone, fax and Skype.
You will not have to alter your work or personal schedule to take a distance learning course. You will be able to adapt your studies to your own life.
This also means that you have the luxury of keeping or taking up a full-time job while completing your course.
Studying privately from home means you can study at your own pace. Because you are not part of a whole classroom, the study tempo is entirely up to you.
You can even study interior decorating part-time if you want to.
4) Supported learning
Upon enrolment, you will be allocated to a personal tutor to help you throughout your studies. You will also be able to access our academic support staff. This means that distance learning can be even more effective than traditional classroom learning, since you will always receive individual attention.
Besides enabling you to save money on transport and travelling, distance learning institutes are usually more affordable than their traditional counterparts. This does not, however, mean that there is a diminishment of quality!
Even though The Learning Group is a premium distance learning institute, it is still more affordable than most traditional colleges offering the same level of education.
You can give us a call if you want to enquire about fees and payment structures:
With distance learning, you are not limited to taking whatever courses the nearest college or university has to offer. You will be able to take the course you want from anywhere in South Africa.
The Learning Group provides you with a number of interior decorating study options not readily available at other educational institutes in South Africa.
Course choices in interior decorating studies
The Learning Group offers the following courses in interior decorating:
- Short Course Certificate in Decorating
- Short Course Certificate in Sketch-Up
- Short Course Certificate in History of Art
- Short Course Certificate in History of Architecture
- Certificate in Decorating
The certificate courses in interior decorating focus on teaching you the general principles and elements of decorating. These include things such as texture, balance, harmony, line, and colour. You will also be educated in different décor styles and receive training in decorating with textiles, upholstery, furniture, and more.
Art and architecture
The history of art certificate and the history of architecture certificate are both crucial to the discipline of interior decorating. Though they can both be studied in their own right, gaining understanding of cultural trends and movements will be invaluable to you as an interior decorator.
The Certificate in Sketch-Up course will teach you how to work with the 3-D modelling software called Google Sketch-Up. With this cutting-edge industry tool, you’ll be able to model and conceptualise interiors, as well as build up a digital portfolio of your work.
