Teaching Structure

Learning Requirements at each Level

Certificate Level – Learning is predominantly tutor-designed and guided, and students are supported in developing individual initiative and group work within this framework, which provides groundwork in critical reflection, subject-specific methods, transferable study skills and skills of accurate communication.

Advanced Certificate – Learning design remains largely tutor-guided with encouragement to work in collaboration with tutors and fellow-students, but with more opportunity for independent learning. There is opportunity for consolidation and development of appropriate study skills and for experiencing a wider range of appropriate methods of study, and opportunity to apply their learning and skills in fieldwork.
