How do we do it? 

We offer a self-paced format without any deadlines, as well as offering unlimited tutor and admin support to help you on your journey 

Our educational philosophy is to focus more on learning and the development of skills and less on assessment.

It is to provide a foundation in our students' area of study and set them on a path to continued learning, whilst being able to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Our courses are designed to be industry and globally relevant.

Who are we?

The Academy for Distance Learning was founded 10 years ago by a consortium of experienced academics.

The founder behind the vision is Daryl Tempest-Mogg, an experienced educator with over 40 years in the delivery of quality distance learning education.

He was strongly influenced by the New South Wales Government's (Australia) Mature Workers Programme, where he managed a local branch near Canberra. In his capacity as Manager combined with his leadership skills, he was able to motivate mature workers back into the workforce through additional training and work skills development.Study guide
