About ITEC Distance Learning


Welcome to Ireland’s biggest and most progressive provider of courses in the further and higher education sectors. Established in the late 1990’s as a distance learning college we set out to become the most professional of course providers and now pride ourselves on the variety of learning formats we offer our students.

We deliver courses by:

  • Distance learning
  • Attendance (classroom based) learning
  • eLearning
  • Blended learning (a combination of attendance learning and either distance or eLearning).

Over the years we sought out and recruited the best course writers and tutors and continue this process in what is a relentless pursuit of excellence. All these years of leadership and creativity has resulted in top-class courses that were designed and produced by experts in their fields and the process of up-dating course material is continuous while new subjects are added to our Prospectus on a continuing basis to give up-to-date information and more and more choice. We have helped many thousands of people in all parts of the world to achieve internationally recognised qualifications and so realise their goals and career ambitions.

Our courses also offer you the opportunity to pursue interests and acquire valuable new skills.
Our courses represent terrific value for money just compare our prices with other course providers. You might well ask how can we offer such quality courses at such competitive prices in addition to our special offer of 2 courses for the price of 1.

The reason is quite simple. We have our own courses written for us and we do not resell courses from the UK or elsewhere on an agency basis.

ITEC has agreed its quality assurance procedures with QQI and is registered with QQI to offer programmes leading to FETAC/QQI awards in the National Framework of Qualifications.

QQI is responsible for the external quality assurance of further and higher education and training and validates programmes and makes awards for certain providers in these sectors.

All our accreditations are based on our operations here in Leopardstown Business Centre, Dublin 18. We have our own team of professionally qualified tutors, our own Quality Assurance Officer our own IT and e-learning personnel as well as experienced clerical and administrative staff. Have a look at our organisational chart. This will give you an indication of our substance and professionalism.

So whether you want to make a career start or career change, work from home, learn a new skill, return to the work-place, improve your job prospects, gain an internationally recognised award, earn extra income or start your own business venture, you'll find there's a topic here to suit you.


Our Courses

For the duration of a course there are exercises and activities to be completed - it is very important you get through all of these to gain the most from your material. Remember, you have ample time to complete everything.

With most of the learning formats you progress at a pace that suits you. This, combined with the convenience and comfort of studying at home in a relaxed atmosphere, the total confidentiality of the arrangements, and the fact that you do not have the bother and expense to travel anywhere are overwhelming reasons why so many people choose to study with us.

Also, when you chose ITEC, you choose a friendly organisation, one that cares, one that is interested in your progress and success and one that constantly ensures that its materials are up-to-date.
Because we are the No 1 independent education and training college in Ireland we are regularly contacted by overseas organisations either seeking an affiliation with us or offering a service to support our training/programmes. We have a formal working relationship with a number of international organisations. One of these is of particular relevance to what we do and offer our students:

Verax International are world leaders in the provision of Management/Leadership competencies tests and we include such a test with all our courses that contain a business/management element.

This test has to be taken on line and the results will be sent directly to each student by email usually within 3/4 working days.

The test will allow you to assess your own performance against 16 key management/leader competencies - such as customer focus, decision making, creativity and team working - which are valued by employers and which are very important for effective performance as a manager or team leader. There is one test for managers in the public sector and a separate test for all other managers. Depending on which version chosen, your performance is benchmarked either against 15,000 or so managers in the database or against public sector managers only.

In summary, this unique test will show you what to stop doing (or do less of) and what to start doing (or do more of) in order to become more effective in your current role/activity. In effect, you are told what you need to do to become a more effective manager and team leader and most important of all, how to do it.

ITEC Personality/Intelligence Test. All our students have the option to take this revealing test for an additional cost of €25.00.

The test asks questions to determine:

  • Are you a 'Take-Charge' type?
  • Are you a manipulative person?
  • Are you a real friend when the going gets rough?
  • How popular are you?
  • Could you be your own boss?
  • What’s your leadership potential?

The objective is not only to help you achieve greater personal and professional success – but to show you how to get what you really want out of life.

If you would like to speak with one of our staff please give us a call or if you would like to come in and visit us and see our operations we would be delighted to meet you. In the latter event, simply telephone us at 01 2061832 or 2061833 to ensure that we will have some one free to spend time with you when you call.


About Learning

In the Ireland of today, learning new skills and increasing knowledge is no longer an option: it is essential in order to achieve success in any given career. By acquiring these skills and knowledge, anyone can greatly increase their opportunities whether they are looking for a career start, seeking a new career, anxious to earn extra income, keen to start their own business venture or interested in working from home.

Blended learning is the modern, professional way to develop your potential. It is convenient, flexible, efficient and extremely cost effective with minimum commuting delays and hence travelling or accommodation costs to pay. You choose what subject you want to study and you are, therefore, not restricted to accepting what you are offered by your local or nearby educational institution. You make your own deadlines and you can start when it suits you, taking time out if the need arises. You will receive all the support and encouragement you need and this will help keep you interested and motivated for the duration.

To acquire new skills and knowledge is to give yourself greater ability, confidence and authority as well as vastly increased opportunities.


Our study programmes are for:

  • those who are seeking a career change,
  • those who wish to widen their career opportunities,
  • those who wish to set-up their own business
  • employees wishing to enhance their skills
  • line managers in companies
  • owners/managers of small businesses.
