  • Students are also provided with learning resources, usually in the form of learner manuals. These provided the core of each unit’s content which is explored during training hours. Students have at their disposal a computer lab with the necessary resources and computer equipment to create presentations, repeat and reinforce topics taught in classrooms or research topics using online sources.

Learning materials are accessed via the College’s Moodle platform to which each student and trainer has access. Classrooms are equipped with laptops and presentation screens to provide for presentations by trainers or students. The classes emphasise on reflecting genuine workplace scenarios. Role-plays, demonstrations, and case studies are particularly important in this regard. These assessment tools consist of the following components (components may vary from unit to unit):
  • Written/ knowledge assessment
  • Project assessment
