How I'll learn
The units are delivered through a variety of techniques to suit all different learning styles. The class work includes: group work, pair activities, investigations, discussions, experiments and note taking.
You will have access to advanced engineering systems including PLC/microprocessor programming devices, modern CAD and 3D printer equipment and access to high standard electronic laboratory and mechanical workshop areas.
You will be provided with a suitably equipped place to work when attending college, which will include access to specialist staff, IT facilities and other learning resources which will be appropriate for the nature of work you will be required to undertake. Support with students with disabilities is also available.
How I'll be assessed
The assessment you undergo could be formative or summative:
- Formative - Designed to provide you with feedback on your progress and inform you of your on-going development. Formative assessments, such as in class exercises, tests, activities, do not form part of your grade.
- Summative - Designed to provide a measure of your achievement in respect of your performance in relation to the intended learning outcomes of your programme of study. In other words, the end of Unit assignments will determine your grades.
You will be asked to participate in formative and summative assessment procedures which may require you to consider and grade your own work against the agreed assessment criteria. This allows you to reflect upon your own practice, with tutors, and to take responsibility for acknowledging areas of strength and weakness in your work.
