Teaching and Learning Methods
All students learn differently and for some it may be a return to the classroom following a break from formal learning.
Our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn.
One key teaching and learning method is that of demonstrations.
Tutors ensure that demonstrations are used whenever possible so you can see the practical skill being used so you can then practise the skill.
You will work collaboratively with your peers in group work, presentations and within practical sessions.
There will be dedicated individual/self-study time on your programme which needs to be supported by your own study out of the College learning environments.
E-learning is also a key element of all our courses and will involve you using our Moodle platform for independent study and learning.
Within the curriculum we also use a range of on-line apps to support, enhance and motivate learning.
Your tutors will be support you with new technologies used in the classroom.
Your tutors will support you in preparing for your examinations alongside your own responsibility for your learning.
The assessments for this qualification will be through practical demonstration, assignments which will be externally set, internally assessed and externally verified.
