We aim to deliver this course in a face to face classroom setting. Our arrangements for course delivery will be regularly reviewed in line with the relevant government guidance. If situations change, your course may require an element of blended learning. This means some sessions may be virtual classrooms using technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. So, you will therefore need access to a PC, laptop, or other suitable device. These sessions may be full classes, or provide work set online to undertake during the session.
