How will I be taught?

We will use a mixture of tutor input, discussion and group and pair work as appropriate. Students may converse in pairs or groups, with participants of different levels and skills with the aim to encourage everyone to contribute and progress.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited at the end of the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will give verbal feedback on your progress based on the work you do and your contribution.

What do I need to have with me?

Handouts will be provided; please bring writing materials for note taking.

What can I do next?
