Core Curriculum

The core curriculum consists of a fully integrated, blended, day-to-day, scheduled curriculum which allows the learner to study at their own pace, and to allow them to be fully aware of the requirements which are set out in our learning system. This leads to maturity in learning. The lessons and resources enable the teacher / parent or tutor to guide the student through the required materials in a systematic, professional manner and efficient manner. This results in the building of solid foundations on which future studies will be based.

Learning materials are delivered via a range of both computer based as well as traditional textbook materials.

How does Assessment Work? (Self / External)
