All courses have general information about the tutor and a course orientation guide. The main course lessons sit below. These are released every Monday from 19th April.
The lessons are approximately 1 hour in duration (some are shorter, some are longer) depending on the course material covered.
The lessons will require you to watch the video through (no skipping forward). At the end of the lesson you will need to take the lesson quiz. It is a simple quiz to check your learning. You can take the quiz as many time as you need to get it right. You won’t be able to view the next lesson until you’ve passed the quiz.
Lesson resources, such as references, papers, worksheets will sit below the video.
We’d encourage you post your reflections in the comments section below the lesson (see below on Community). We know that those people who are actively reflecting on learning are getting more out of the courses.
Completion of all lessons and all quizzes will complete the course and issue the certificate, which you can access from the Dashboard.
You have access to the course material for 12 months from 19th April

The Q&As will be hosted on Zoom so please make sure you have that set up on your device https://zoom.us/download Q&As will be recorded so that people who can’t make the meeting will have a chance to learn from the discussion. Q&As will last 30-45 mins, depending on the number of questions

You will be sent the meeting link on the day of the meeting via email. Please do not pass this on – it is exclusively for you.
