Learning Methodology

The modules and courses here are delivered entirely through e-learning which consists of the web, email and other soft-based platforms like mobile. We could consider postal distance or correspondence where such can be accommodated. But this must receive our consent before it can be adopted by the learner.

Learning materials, download links or references will be sent to learners for all studies which have to be completed as instructed from time to time by the School, and should be returned for grading within the specified time period. These may not be applicable for all cases and learning instruction (where applicable and necessary) will be provided from time to time.

The learning model used is the three-pronged learning strategy. You may not be able to particularly choose the course of your choice but the supply of your profiles is important for aligning you to a course. This means that the sector you choose (where you work or desire to study) will determine the industry and then the role you intend to occupy or assume. These will determine your course placement by us.

The learning methodology used is tripartite study approach which are Sector-based Study (SbS), Work-based Learning (WbL) and Role-based Study (RbS) and are related to both local and international areas though with particular reference to Africa. The learning strategy is practical with virtually non-theory existent.

Learners here are given the opportunity to learn a variety of skills by expanding career options available at their disposal within a specific industry they are already involved in. The aim is also to narrow the gap between theory and practice. It also includes applied learning programs as the major course offerings. It also affords rookies in new employment to cross over to other allied sectors or industries through the learning experience garnered.

The different programmes look at the different career paths or job roles and define their job descriptions. Based on these, learners will be trained towards being able to meet up with their job roles and specifications.

Some of the occupations that a learner/worker may want to increase competency in or prospect towards in terms of promotion or career change include: food scientist, biochemist, architect, actor, journalist, producer, HR administrator, administrative specialist, accountant, financial analyst, teacher, principal, entrepreneur, professor, stock broker, banker, insurance agent, loan & credit officer, marketer (as per field), policy or budget analyst, medical laboratory scientist, public health officer, chef, travel & tourism manager, social worker, network administrator, police officer, customer service officer, sales person, pilot, public relations officer, marketing research analyst, advertising officer, treasurer, cash officer, research officer, academic planner, etc., which comprise all categories of jobs and sub-roles that learners desire could be chosen by the learners.
