How will I be taught?
Your tutor will create a supportive environment that encourages students to evaluate their own work and to give constructive criticism of other's work. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you need.
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 from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.

What do I need to join the course
Everyone is welcome on the course but basic written English skills are required.
You should have a fair range of writing experience or have attended some similar courses/undertaken linked activities. Each of the three separate terms offered at this level are designed to help you go forward with your creative ideas and writing. Sharing work and then getting useful critique is an integral part of the course, though this is also supported by the tutor covering a broad range of approaches, tasks, ideas and styles for you to learn about then try.
