Support from family and friends is also important when you study for a qualification, so here are some tips on how to get the very best support:

  • Start a household rota and get the whole family to help out. This will help you free up time for learning.
  • Whenever your confidence dips, phone the most positive and optimistic person you know for support.  Imagine that they are your own personal support officer.
  • Get to know other students studying for the qualification so you can share the experience and spur each other on.
  • Get into the habit of sharing what you learn with your partner, family and friends.  You'll find that most of them will want to hear about what you're doing and how you're progressing.
