Study Method – Online and On Campus
We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this apprenticeship through our Online and On Campus model. You will attend College once every two weeks and will study online materials during allotted time at work.
Online lessons can be accessed at any time, using a mobile, tablet or desktop – meaning you can fit your study around work commitments, minimising disruption in the workplace. Each lesson lasts around 45 minutes and is accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Exercises, interactive case studies and analytical tools help to enhance the learning experience further.
On campus, you benefit from face-to-face classes at College with an experienced tutor.
A combination of classroom-based lessons, group exercises and discussion encourage you to apply theory to real-life workplace situations.
