A blended learning approach
Knowledge and skills are best delivered via a blended learning approach. Learning programmes are ideally designed to include various learning approaches, consisting of a mix of:
- Self-study – this can include using online tutorials and study resources, listening to audio material and watching films and clips.
- Face-to-face time – here, knowledge gained from self-study can be consolidated, but the key to developing skills is practice, plenty of which is included.
- Reflection and assessment, both alone and with line-managers.
