We want to help you learn in a way that you will be able to continue for the rest of your career. We believe that adults learn best when:

They are treated with respect

The topic under study is relevant to their needs, builds on and extends their previous experience

They are actively involved in planning the teaching/learning

The new knowledge/skills can be put into practice straight away

There are opportunities for reflection, and feed back on performance is available, constructive and timely.


We will attempt to use our resources to best achieve your learning needs,

for example:

Learning need Most appropriate resources

Facts, knowledge Books, lectures, research literature, internet

Skills, “how to” Modelling, apprenticeship

Attitudes, opinion Groups, tutorials

Self-awareness Groups, tutorials

Support Groups, tutorials, informal contact

Learning is most effective when the teaching takes account of your prior level ofproficiency in the subject under study and your preferred learning style. So thatwe can get this right, we will show you how to use some self-assessment tools, and some tools to look at how you learn best in your introductory weeks.
