Course Delivery

Employer Links courses at North East Scotland College are delivered in a variety of ways.

Course Delivery

Courses can be delivered in a number of ways, including:

Block Release

Courses which involve employee attendance at a College Campus continuously for several weeks at a time. The length of the block can vary.

Day Release

Courses which involve employee attendance at a College Campus. This typically involves attendance on one full day a week, although this may be more depending on the course.

Part-time

Part-time courses involve attendance at a College Campus or Learning Centre for part of a given day – this can involve either morning, afternoon, evening or full day attendance.

Distance Learning

Distance Learning courses require a large degree of self-study and the majority of this learning is outwith the College. These courses are not for everyone – the onus lies with the individual employee to complete the work within a recommended timeline, so this works well for individuals who are highly motivated, self-disciplined and able to work independently. These courses fall into three categories:

  • Where an element of College attendance is required – usually this would only be for assessment purposes but can also include an element of classroom/workshop based learning.
  • Where no College attendance is required and tutor support is available remotely.
  • Where individuals work completely independently with no tutor support.
