What do students say about this course?

The College ran a pilot SLK course in June 2021 and the students felt that:

  • Materials were easy to access, organised, coherent and well received, especially the video transcripts.
  • They liked the content and the range of learning activities
  • There was a clear link between the leaning materials and the sub- unit practice assessment
  • The MCQs were challenging
  • The Learning portal (Canvas) was experienced as well organised, intuitive and user-friendly.

86% of participants felt very or extremely confident in using the learning portal
100% found the range of formats very or extremely helpful
100% found there was a largely or very clear link between the assessment and what they had been taught.


“The materials are exactly on the "bliss point" - sufficient to keep you focused without overloading us with too much information.”

“It was very easy to navigate, the links to everything are hyperlinked and everything is very well explained. I particularly like how things are organised in 'steps’ “
