Once enrolled, you will receive an email containing your log in details to your online learning platform to start your course. Before your modules are released, you will need to complete a student support module which will give you an overview on topics such as IT skills, Assistive technology, navigate your way through the online learning platform, how to submit your assignments online, study skills, goals, mindfulness, academic writing skills, harvard referencing and supports available at Chevron College. All course materials such as notes, assignment briefs, garda vetting and insurance documents are contained within the online learning platform. No exams are required as all your course work will be continuous assessment. Each week you will be provided with course content to study in your own time and pace. Deadlines will be in place to submit your assignments. 4 scheduled virtual online evening webinars will take place every few weeks. Webinars are also recorded if you cannot attend.
How does the online course work
Students log in to Chevron College’s Virtual Learning Environment and engage with weekly study resources at times that suit their own schedule. There are fortnightly live webinars which most students find very useful. These are recorded to accommodate students who cannot attend the live webinars. Recordings are accessible online after the live sessions. Timely feedback is provided on assessments to support students learning. Additionally, tutors offer 1:1 live support on Teams to students. The schedule of assessments across modules is carefully designed to ensure assessments are evenly spaced out across the semester. You will also undertake 400 hours of learning through placement.
You can contact your tutor by email, request a call back and for that extra peace of mind, obtain feedback on your assignments. Your tutor is available Monday to Friday 9-5:30pm.
If students are struggling to understand weekly content they can post a question to the support forum and their lecturer will post a response to their query. Lecturers also have Open Zoom meetings each week so students can pop in to have a chat about module content if they so wish.
The Studies Advisor is available to support students with areas including academic writing, referencing skills and to develop a realistic study schedule for each module.
During Professional Practice Placement students will be supported by both their Chevron Supervisor and Placement Mentor.
