Delivery Method

Frontier Training and Technology offers the following delivery modes for this qualification:

  • Work based + Face to Face Delivery – Face to face delivery involves the delivery of training sessions either one-to-one or group based. Training sessions are conducted on site in the learners’ workplace and training sessions are scheduled according to employer or learner needs.
    We expect minimum total of 3 hour per week for full time trainee. During the pre-training review, the trainers’ visit hours are decided and are reflected in the training plan.
    The visit hours are decided upon by mutual agreement between the employer, trainer and the student. To ensure effectiveness of training sessions and encourage student participation, group sizes will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants in the workplace.
    Each session will allow enough time for the students to learn the topic, undertake practice opportunities and, where required by learner or employer needs, complete / submit set tasks required for assessment purposes.
  • Self- paced learning – Self-paced learning involves the learner undertaking learning and assessment tasks between face-to-face consultations. The extent of self-paced learning is determined by each individual learner and is communicated through the trainer and assessor.
