Teaching and Learning Methods
Our expert tutors understand that everyone learns in different ways so they use a range of teaching methods to enable everyone to achieve their potential. A key method used is demonstration, which allows you to observe the practical application of skills before having a go yourself.
The course combines group work, presentations, practical sessions and dedicated self-study periods. This needs to be supported by your own study outside of College, using online development platforms such as Moodle, our virtual learning environment.
E-learning is a key element of all our courses and we also use a range of online apps to support, enhance and motivate learning. Your tutors will support you with these technologies.
Class-based time totals 12 hours over 2 days a week for 35 weeks. You will also be expected to devote an additional 3 hours a week for independent study and assessment.
