How are the courses taught?

The course is taught through a range of learner-centred methods including formal lectures, interactive workshops, and projects. Additional seminars and learning opportunities will be undertaken more locally with your mentor and through distance learning. Learners must complete a workplace service place audit during the six month break before returning to Module 2 to present their findings. Audits are presented to peers in small groups with a faculty member, where each audit is discussed and critiqued and learners take part in voting for the best audit. Find out more about the course structure by watching the videos on this page.
