Face to face delivery in a teaching/ classroom environment

        This is the predominant mode of delivery. Delivered face to face, the training & assessments is carried out on the school’s premises within a classroom setting. This is mostly used for training and theory-based assessments such as questions, fill in the blanks, tables and charts.

Face to Face training in a simulated environment

         This mode of delivery is where the training & assessments is carried out face to face on the school’s premises but involves simulated environments &/or tasks. This may includes role plays, case studies, simulated demonstrations and activities where the room is to be set up accordingly with industry equipment and processes.

Independent self-paced learning

        This mode of delivery requires students to complete structured ‘consolidation learning tasks’. This complements the face to face training, encourages self directed learning, research, sharing of information & reflective practice.

Industry learning

As part of the community project, student will be required to immerse themselves into the community through phone, email and direct contact. This will involve real business documents & forms, direct industry relations and collaboration with local community-based organisations.
