How long is the course?

Full-time over one year.

How will I learn?

Learners are expected to take control of their own learning, and it is our job to guide you towards the independent approach to learning rather than just give you all the knowledge you need. You may find you have more freedom to decide what to do, but also that you need to make decisions for yourself. It is very important that you meet deadlines set and put in the hours expected on the course. One of the objectives of this course is to prepare you for a job, and this student-centered approach is an important part of this process. You will take part in practical classes where you will develop various Information Communication Technology skills.

How will I be assessed?

The assessment is designed to reward students for what they can do as well as what they know. You will be internally assessed through written assignments, projects and / or case study work. Mostly this will be evidence of your work on a computer system and so will be printouts, annotated to explain what you have done. Some units may ask for a special form of evidence to be produced by you.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no specific extra costs, just stationery for study.
