How will the course be assessed?

During the session they will be learning in a variety of ways:
Meeting other learners and teacher.
Sharing what has been learnt on the course.
Question and answering techniques.
Engaging in practical activities*.
Actively listening, observing and discussing.
Completing online documentation.
Accessing apps and websites for further learning opportunities.

Materials and other information

So the course can start on time, it’s important to be ready to join your online course 15 minutes prior to the official start time.

It would be useful to have a pen and paper so you can make notes throughout the course

* If learners are physically able to, there will be opportunities to join in practical activities during the session. Some of this will involve kneeling on the floor so appropriate clothing will be needed.

Learners will need to inform the teacher if they are unable to participate in the practical activities.

A pillow, cushion, doll or teddy can be used instead of an adult, child and baby manikin when practising the correct techniques for children and babies at home. The teacher will guide and assess learners during these activities.

If learners have a first aid kit or any first aid items they can bring them to the session for group discussion. A triangular bandage or something similar (scarf/towel) will be needed for some of the practical activities.
If there is another person in the house that is able to lie on the floor for the recovery position activity and willing to have an arm bandaged during the session this would enhance the practical learning experience.

The Additional Learning Support Team work across college supporting students with a variety of learning needs in different ways.  Support can be requested at enrolment or at any point throughout the course by emailing als.lal@nelsongroup.ac.uk
