HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?

As a learner on this course, you can expect a dual delivery teaching method: part-online via Microsoft Teams, and part in-class. This method of delivery is very much the future of education, and has become much more standard since early 2020. Therefore, access to some form of computer or laptop is essential. If you do not have access to your own computer or laptop, Preston’s College have excellent ICT facilities on-site, which are available to book and use.

In addition to course specific learning facilities, as a Preston’s College learner you will have access to the full Office 365 suite, a comprehensive Learning Zone and Library, on-site gym, and a tutor on-hand to answer your questions and queries.

To join this course, no prior knowledge of education is required – just a willingness to learn.
