How will I be taught?
Our teaching methods include explanation, discussion and times for question and answer sessions in additional to some group work activities.
At the start of your course you will be asked to complete an Initial Assessment which will be used by you and your tutor to reflect on and monitor your progress. Your tutor will also use this information to ensure that all of your personal goals are achieved and provide individual support where necessary. At the end of the course you and your tutor are asked to assess the progress you have made.
