Different ways of learning with BAES
Service Update: Our centres have returned to being fully open and back to normal operation.
In line with the Government’s plans to take the UK out of the national lockdown we have now re-opened our centres. Most of our courses will now be running onsite but due to the popularity of certain online courses we are continuing to deliver these in virtual classrooms.
The safety of our learners and staff remain of the utmost importance so we have put the following guidelines together and ask all visitors to our centres to be aware of them.
On-site Classroom (OS)
All learners attend every lesson in one of our centres. All classes occur at a specific day and time every week
What will the On-site classroom be like: These classes will be made up of small groups of between 12 - 15 learners depending on classroom size. All learners attend every lesson.
Which classes? This method of delivery is for subjects that cannot be taught easily online, due to the practical nature of the subject, because learners who would be severely disadvantaged or would find it extremely difficult to do the course online.
Virtual Classroom (VC)
All learners attend every class online. All classes occur at a specific day and time every week
What will the Virtual Classroom be like: These classes will have a maximum 16 learners per class.
Blended Learning (BL)
All blended learning courses planned for this year will be now be delivered fully online using the Virtual Classroom model until further notice.
