  Key Notes
Hello and welcome to the first issue of Key Notes.

Each month we’re going to be bringing you information, tips and offers which we hope you’ll find informative and useful. But as this is your ezine, we’d also like to hear from you. Let us know what you think about the content; let us have any interesting snippets of information on the subjects you are studying and tell us about your successes – with your studies and at work. You are a diverse community, with interests in lots of different subjects, but I am sure we can provide you with a newsletter with something for everyone.

Distance education is a great way to learn. You can work at your own pace and in your own time, without having to try and keep up with others or feeling that you are being held back. But it can be a little lonely at times and here at STT we want to do everything we can to make you feel part of a student community. You may be working at home, but you’re certainly not alone!

The first article of this newsletter covers a topic that’s important to everyone – how to study. It may seem obvious, but it’s surprising how many people fall by the wayside because they just can’t find the discipline and techniques they need to make a success of their studies. We’ll also be looking at some useful websites and introducing our course of the month.

So here we go…

 Best of the Web
This is a good site for anyone interested in journalism. Amongst other things, there is a section on how to start out in journalism, giving editors’ top tips and advice to beginners. There are links to UK newspaper websites – both daily and weekly papers – and an amusing section giving unusual headlines and newspaper funnies.
An interesting site that gives you access the the Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary. They also have the following sections: Activities, Top 40 words and Word of the Day.
This is a body that accredits members of the counselling profession. They say that the purpose of their accreditation is ‘to show to the public that the member is, in the opinion of the body, safe, competent and ethical to practice counselling’. Definitely worth a look if you are studying any of our counselling-related courses.
 In Conclusion
I hope you’ve found this first issue of Key Notes interesting. Don’t forget to get in touch – I would like to hear from you about your successes, tips you might have for other students on how to get the best from their courses and any suggestions for how we could improve this newsletter.
