    PROGRAM DELIVERY AND ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The course program is scheduled to be delivered over a 78-week timeframe of full-time study consisting of 60 weeks of scheduled class time plus 18 weeks of breaks.

  • Classes are scheduled at 20 hours per week (15 hours face-to-face + 5 hours online learning).
  • Due to COVID-19, all classes are currently delivered online 20 hours per week. This is a temporary arrangement and will continue until further notice.
  • The course is divided into 6 terms.
  • Holiday periods are 3 weeks in duration for every term-break throughout the year.
  • 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. Students may also be referred to additional materials available in the student library. Such resources may be used as additional materials for study during students’ own time. 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
  • Practical assessment
  • Evidence gathering tools, e.g. observation checklists
