Teaching and Learning Methods
One key teaching and learning method is that of demonstration.
Your tutors ensure that demonstrations are used whenever possible so that you can see the practical skills being used and then you can practice the skills.
You will work collaboratively with your peers in group work and within practical bar and restaurant sessions.
There will be dedicated individual/self-study times on your programme which needs to be supported by your own study outside of the college learning environment.
E-learning is also a key element of our courses and will involve you using our virtual learning environment for independent study.
Your tutors will support you in preparing for assessment alongside your own responsibility for your learning.
Your class contact time will be 5 hours per week for 4 weeks plus 2 hours independent study, guided by your tutor.
Alternatively, depending on job role some assessments can be carried out in your workplace.
