/ Distance learning degree in Ecology/Env Science etc etc...
Open university http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/qualification/q19.htm (degree but I think you can also just do individual modules)
Exeter: http://education.exeter.ac.uk/dll/list_courses.php?code=dln (not accredited)
A lot of places have free teaching materials online if you just want something to work through
- I'm looking for something similar but at masters level :)
My Msc is distance learning with University of the Highlands and Islands they do plenty environmental stuff
Manchester Met have taken over the running of the very good Biological Recording course, which used to be administered by the University of Birmingham. Its not distance learning, basically you do individual FSC courses as modules (often over weekends) that add up to the certificate. Ive worked as a consultant ecologist for more than 10 years and its the only course Im aware of that actually teaches field skills (the firm I work for routinely sends all new ecologists on it, since universities/other courses fall short in this respect).

Cheers all, I was aware of that recording course, but couldnt find it on the web, so cheers, Im very interested in it :)
