How will I study?

You will have one initial training session which will normally be a full day, face-to-face session. You will be allocated a tutor who will support you through the course by phone and email and you will have access to teaching and learning materials and assessment Tasks.  You will have a further 2 hour session to look at the second unit a week later, which could be face-to-face or online, depending on the needs of the group and then a  final half hour tutorial session online on the third week. At Level 3 you will be observed delivering information, advice or guidance and you will have the opportunity for a further tutorial at this point, if required.  We can arrange the observation to meet your needs. This will be discussed with you at the sessions.
