Teaching and Delivery Modes for Students

At Educare key objectives are to ensure that the core focus of your learning experience is based on the practical applications of your study. Therefore, we support you by providing learning materials which are utilised during most of the following delivery modes such as:

  • Face to face facilitation and roleplays

  • Independent learning/simulated sessions

  • Group based workshops and discussions

Face to Face /Class and on the Job Work Placement

International students must attend face to face in person for classroom full time sessions. Classroom lessons contact times will be min 20 hours each week. Lessons will be conducted in both theory and practical modes. Trainers may decide depending on the students’ knowledge and skills that are required to achieve competencies in their tasks, to interlace some theoretical information delivered during practical sessions. Most theoretical subjects will contain other modes such as role plays/PowerPoint presentations/videos/ and other interactive methods as required.

Competency-based Assessments

Certain competencies may also be assessed during work placement if required. The assessment is conducted by your assigned Trainer & Assessor from Educare who will evaluate your knowledge, skills and performance against the required workplace criteria to assess your competency in that specific area/unit. Manual Handling will form part of your practical assessment and will be conducted on campus first before your first block of work placement hours.

You will be provided a list of methods you will be assessed with in your Training Plan and Assessment strategy document in your orientation and induction week. Your assessor will address these in more detail during teaching times.
