Shifting Trends in Learning

Google Trends data showing an increase in demand for 'Reed Courses' over the last year

“Online learning has been extremely popular over the last few months, and we don’t expect this trend to stop anytime soon. Not only are customers likely to continue to choose this option, learning providers are expected to improve their online learning methods in order to meet demand. Additionally, higher-priced courses in the regulated and professional sector are popular at this time of year, as they’re perfect for school leavers who don’t want to go to university but are keen to keep learning.”

Before the end of the year, reed.co.uk Courses will become a one-stop-shop for budding students to find their course, view and engage with it – right there and then on the site. An all-in-one digital learning platform.
