How will I be taught?
Teaching will also be through lecture, discussion, small group and pair work. Theory will be presented on PowerPoint and practical elements will be addressed and practised in practical sessions. You will be required to do homework and preparation outside class hours.
You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire before the start of the course which must be given to your tutor at your first session. Your tutor will be happy to discuss any concerns before or after each session.
We want you to enjoy learning with us. If you have a disability or medical condition that may affect coming to class or using any of our facilities, we would like to discuss this with you. Please talk to a member of staff about any access or support needs for a particular course.
All our classes are monitored for quality purposes and occasionally a visitor may attend your class to observe the teaching and learning taking place.
What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring a pen and a notebook.
What can I do next?
Specialist advice is available from your tutor to help identify the next suitable course for you.
