Why study with Churchill?

At Churchill Education, we do things differently.

When you work with Churchill, you won’t be assigned a trainer. Instead, you’ll get a mentor.

Trainers deliver a set course in a set way, but mentors facilitate learning, however they can.

We won’t sign you up and then desert you.

Instead, you’ll receive regular contact in a variety of ways, such as Skype calls, emails from your mentor, webinars, Q&A sessions, access to online student groups and pop-up classes.

It’s often online but you’re never really alone. We’ve got your back.
