About us

At the Blackford Centre, we aim to help people set up their own home-based business.

Our courses include interior design, garden design and horticulture, writing, complementary therapies, event and wedding planning.

Our courses are supported by web-based material, and students can discuss issues with each other.

Our tutors are all full-time practitioners, who bring their on-the-job experience to the course. Our students get advice directly from active experts - not armchair theorists.

With offices in the UK, South Africa and Australia, we have students in more than 30 countries around the world.

Our commercial trading name is Home Study Courses Limited. We're registered at Companies House: registration number 352 4886.
