What is Accelerated Learning?

Accelerated learning is term used for techniques used to improve learning. Put simply, how do we ensure a learner clearly receives, understands and remembers what is being taught. On our courses we try to ensure courses have a high level of student participation, workshops, activities, visual aids and other techniques.

Are there minimum requirements to attend a course?

Courses vary and so have varying pre course requirements. Our sales team on +44 (0) 1908 793246 can help discuss your individual needs.

What is Blended Learning?

Blended Learning is when the deliver method for the course uses more than one method. For example; when knowledge is studied by e-learning and skills delivered in the classroom. This method can offer time and money efficiencies but may not be suitable for all courses or delegates. Talk through your learning needs with our team +44 (0) 1908 793246.

Are courses residential?

Where courses are run over several days we have relationships with local hotels where our delegates (and often tutors will stay). Contact details for a selection of hotels will be detailed in your joining instructions.

Some yes and others are continuous assessment. For example an IRCA Lead Auditor course concludes with a 2 hour examination on the Friday. However an IRCA Internal Auditor course is continuous assessment.
