The Activate Learning Guarantee for new students

As part of this, we have put together the Activate Learning Guarantee to support prospective students starting in September 2020:

Guarantee 1

Prior to starting at Activate Lea​rning, we guarantee a comprehensive introduction for each student. This will include what life as an Activate Learning student looks like alongside a​n introduction to the programme area they wish to join. This will all happen online. It will include a short project to keep students engaged and practiced in their learning: something to read; something to do, etc. 

Guarantee 2

As a minimum entitlement, and if the pandemic development requires this, all programmes will start on time through our capability to make learning happen remotely online, through our best in class online virtual learning environment, ALO, Moodle, etc.

Guarantee 3

If we can ensure safety, good hygiene and social distancing, we will use the first three weeks of term to provide a campus orientation session for each student. This will ensure students can:

  • access the technology and apps they need to learn online effectively
  • meet their tutors 
  • understand how the campus will work to ensure social distancing
  • start to build a positive peer group bond with small group of other students (their ‘bubble’) they will be matched with and learning alongside

Guarantee 4

After this three-week period where we orientate learners so they are ‘campus-ready’. On Campus learning will begin in small groups on-site with alternating sessions (weeks or days depending on programme), as well as introductions to practical sessions and other facilities. This arrangement will be within our guarantee of it being done with due regard to safety, hygiene and social distancing.
