How will I be taught?
Our tutors are very experienced in their field, are trained to teach adults and are committed to ensuring that students enjoy their courses with Kent Adult Education. Each tutor strives to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere where students can work at an appropriate pace. Teaching methods are varied, and incorporate many styles including group work, pair work, some individual work and in some cases self study. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you would like.
This is an introductory course, so you are not expected to bring any knowledge, but we will be interested to find out how much you have gained from the course by the end.
What do I need to bring with me?
We advise students not to purchase equipment, books or materials until after the first session of the course unless otherwise stated but a pen, paper and a folder will be helpful, along with a willingness to take part in discussions.
What can I do next?
The course would be a useful starting point for anyone considering studying Psychology at GCSE or AS level or you could continue with the Introductory courses to cover a breadth of topics in Psychology. It could also lead to one of our day courses that covers some of the topics in more detail. Your tutor will advise you on the appropriate follow-up course or visit www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
Everyone is welcome to join the course.
This forms part of the Introduction to Psychology Courses, so would be ideal for someone who is looking to continue their study of psychology. Equally this course runs as a stand-alone option and can be studied without any prior knowledge of psychology.
