Diploma in Social Work Studies Course: is of great importance, in the community. A Social Worker helps to change and improve lives of the vulnerable groups, old aged people and young people, who will be living under stress, abuse, and facing different kind of challenges which will not be easy to overcome. All in all, Social Workers, are considered as problem relievers, in fact most people have different social challenges they meet in life which need a Social Worker to attend to. This Course teaches and trains a person how to socialize in the community, and how to assist people facing challenges. Before being trained by Alison, I did not have a know-how on dealing with matters arising in the community, I thank Alison College for opening my mind, now I can operate in my community, in socializing, solving, reporting and making decisions on different challenges faced by clients. I now know the way forward in handling issues and problems of people in the community. Through Diploma in Social Work Studies Course, I am empowered person.

After my own experiences with ALISON, I really believe that these courses are can develop talent and help anyone who wants to learn

First I want to thank all employees at ALISON for providing a great opportunity for free education.  I am working in the HR field and this requires a lot of reading and researching to keep my knowledge up-to-date.  I wanted to study courses related to my field to pursue a promotion and to develop key skills.  I began to study ALISON last year and found it easy to fit my studies around my work. I am now certified in the "Fundamentals of Operations Management" and am currently taking the ‘Diploma in Human Resources’.   After my own experiences with ALISON, I really believe that these courses are can develop talent and help anyone who wants to learn.

I have used my ALISON qualifications to grow my business and help others in my community to study online.

I would like to thank ALISON for the free courses that have changed my life and helped my business to grow.  I am the Director of a small company in Zimbabwe. I  had no qualifications until I found out about ALISON. With ALISON, I completed a number of free IT courses including
‘Introduction to Computer Science’ and ‘Microsoft Digital Literacy’. The courses have helped me professionally and personally.  As well as improving my business, I also manage a group of over 15 students in my community who are studying with ALISON. Thank you ALISON for the opportunity you have given to learners around the world.

Achieving my career goals with ALISON

Studying with ALISON has changed my life. I work in Law and wanted to learn some new skills. After completing the ‘Diploma in Legal Studies’ with ALISON, my clients were very pleased with my knowledge of legal systems, procedures and practices. I can now take on more duties and have successfully represented a number of clients. My studies with ALISON played an important part in achieving this success. I am taking more courses on and look forward to developing my knowledge even further

ALISON helped me to secure a promotion

I could never get a promotion with my company without a diploma. I decided to complete ALISON’s free ‘Diploma in Workplace Health and Safety’ to help advance my career. The company that I work for made my dream come true by promoting me and giving me an opportunity to study further after I completed my studies with ALISON. Thanks to the ALISON team who helped me to achieve my goals and make me who I am today. Martin Chishimba, UK

Promoting ALISON

Good  morning  Support  Team 
Early  this  morning,(at  7am)   away  over  here  in  New  Zealand  ,  I  spoke about  ALISON ,  and  the  inspirational  effects  Tom Kelley  had  on  me  when  covering  the  course  for  Personal  Success.
I spoke   enthusiastically  to  my  Toastmasters  Club,(about  20 members  present)  and  they  were all away  to Google ALISON  ,  at  the  conclusion  of  the  hour-long  meeting  .

Fantastic site and long may it reign

I enrolled on the 17/3/2011 and since then I have studied a lot of courses and I have a few certificates I think this is a fantastic site and long may it reign. I study on here because it helps my memory, I had to leave work because of my health in 2004 and I went on line privately in 2010 and in 2011 I started looking for any free "ECDL" courses of which I didn't find any but I found "Alison" and am I pleased I did, so I would like to say thank you and I intend to keep on learning as long as I am able, so once again thank you. Yours Mr Keith Gray.

Getting your career back on track

Millions of people worldwide log onto their online classroom everyday with the aim of improving their job prospects, getting themselves back into the jobs market or just to learn.

Meet Rachel Myer, a 38-year-old mother of three, who used online education to get her career back on track.

I did not think that free online education was possible

Being a South African Citizen I did not think that free online education was at all possible until I came across Alison. I must admit I was a bit sceptical but thought that it would do no harm to give it a try. I am a Business Advisor by profession but lacked a formal diploma, as I only had a certificate in Human Resource Management. Based on the amount of course work in Business Management and Entrepreneurship, I became more and more convinced that this was the real deal. I finished my Diploma in Business Management and Entrepreneurship in December 2013, and was very excited to know that I now posess a diploma. I want to encourage people all over the world that cannot afford to pay exhorbitant fees to colleges and universities to make use of Alison.

Promote ALISON

Please tell everyone there in your nice Country whoever doubts Alison that they are not crooks or whatever bad term who may like to describe them of and that Alison is the best and you will learn Courses in very simple English which you will never find in those Institutions charging exorbitant fees un-necessarily. Please let’s say "cheers' to Alison and move with them. I promise to always support Alison because they are straight, innovative, strong, free education providers and trustworthy.

Warmest regards,

Isaiah John Bwanga

The Benefits of ALISON

Over the years, I became increasingly interested in writing and internet marketing. I was so busy at work that it was impossible to take time off to study full-time. One day in 2012, I did a search on the internet for online study courses and came across I enrolled for the first course immediately. I could study at my own pace. The courses are geared towards practical application, so I was able to apply what I’ve learnt immediately. I have completed the following courses since December 2012: How to Create Your First Website; Social Networking and Viral Marketing Using Facebook; Using YouTube; Diploma in Social Media Marketing and the Diploma in Basic English Grammar.
