Short Courses are widely used in formal and non-formal settings by 13-19 year olds, as well as by adults and younger learners where appropriate. Because they are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
They can be used as stand-alone programmes or as progression routes into the Personal Development Programmes.
This new online platform offers an easy and paperless way for learners and tutors to access Short Courses – planning, reviewing and recording progress, uploading evidence, monitoring progress and assessing learners’ work.
Learners can upload evidence to their personal e-portfolio to demonstrate what they have done and the skills they have developed. Tutors moderate e-portfolios on screen and then request certification.
