      HOW WILL I LEARN?
      Task-based learning is the teaching and learning style that we adopt at the

      College. This will involve you having weekly set challenges with clear deadlines that will be monitored by key tutors, with extra support available as needed. Tasks will be discussed and debated mainly in small groups with or without a tutor although more tutors are available as learning support is offered in the class rather than outside the main timetable. This means that you will be able to work at your own pace according to your ability and it will be easier for those of you who have questions or do not understand, to see help outside a formal lecture room setting.

      WHAT CAN THIS COURSE LEAD TO?
      AS Human Biology or equivalent level of study
