    Teaching and Learning Methods

    The programme will be delivered in line with the availability of apprentices, based on their industry activities.  As this programme will be delivered for individuals working at sea, it must around their work pattern, which may be 3 weeks on and 2 weeks off.  

    The on-site delivery elements of the programme will be consolidated into blocks, enabling individuals to attend for short periods of time and complete a number of programme elements. The block delivery will be tailored to meet the needs of employers, with start dates that are agreed in line with their operational requirements. Regular contact with apprentices will be planned and managed around their industry activities. 

    The block delivery will comprise three periods of study physically on campus:

    • phase 1 will be 10 weeks in duration
    • phase 2 will be 6 weeks in duration
    • phase 3 will be 2 weeks in duration
       

    Knowledge that does not require practical skills will be delivered via our virtual learning portal Canvas and, when required, supplemented by practical activities and simulation. Practical units will be delivered in workshop environment.

    Industry Placement and Field Trips
