Learning and teaching

The emphasis of the course is on participation and you are encouraged to actively participate in class through various non-threatening forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.

Coursework and assessment

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.

You will not have formal examinations but you may have a portfolio of written texts and class participation. Our assessments are flexible to suit the course and you 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.
