Our courses have been designed with the student in mind - with a range of learning approaches and hands-on opportunities. Each course will be delivered via online correspondence, one-on-one sessions with your trainer and facilitated group workshops. Your personal mentor will be by your side every step of the way to help you achieve the best outcome possible!
Online Delivery of Content
The content and learning activities for each unit within your selected course will be made available via an online learning platform called Connect (McGraw Hill Education). You will have access in the Connect system to a text book , websites, videos and a range of learning activities. Course and unit outlines are also included in the system to help you navigate the learning process, plus access to all work placement documents.
Sessions with the Trainer
Although you will complete your learning using the online platform, you will regularly connect with your trainer to discuss your progress, to ask questions and work through additional learning activities. These sessions may be conducted face to face or using an online communication method such as Skype, and be tailored to meet your individual requirements.
Facilitated Workshops and Simulation Sessions
These workshops and simulation sessions provide an environment for you to participate in practical learning tasks across the units within your course. You will have the opportunity to work individually, in pairs and in small groups, as required by the activities.
The activities during such sessions include:
Videos and group discussion
Role plays based on simulations that reflect the leadership and management functions relevant to the children’s services context
Practical problem solving exercises
Examples of situations that require simulations include: leading staff meetings, implementing plans, implementing processes to ensure compliance with WHS legislation.
