Currently due to COVID 19 we are teaching online learning. All of our classes are conducted through online Microsoft Teams or Zoom. All of our assessments are also submitted through online systems and feedback is provided to the learners. If any learners will need extra support, we will provide 1-to-1 tutorials to meet their learning needs. However, we will move towards campus-based studies upon the government guidelines and needs of our employers and apprentices.
