Learning and teaching

This course is taught through a mix of online learning and classroom-based learning.

Coursework and assessment

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved.

You will not have formal examinations but you may have class tests. You may be asked to write assignments, keep a course journal or put together a portfolio. Our assessments are flexible to suit the course and the student.

The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
