We want to set you up for success. Here are some study tips you may find useful.

  • Know how you learn best: What time of day is best for you to learn? Do you like to work by yourself or with a study buddy or group?
  • Block out study time in your schedule.
  • Try a system for remembering important information. For example, if you are using paper-based resources, you may want to underline or highlight something, use post-it notes, or use colour.
  • You do not need to complete a unit or module in one sitting, take a break when you need. Step away or take a walk then come back again refreshed to do some more learning or assessments. Setting aside smaller blocks of time can be more efficient than one long session.
  • Use your own words. Answer the assessment questions the way you would say it in a conversation. Be specific when you give an example as this shows understanding of the question and that you can relate it to your own role.
  • Reflect on what you already know. Write down thoughts, questions and information as it comes to you.
  • If a question seems confusing, break it down into smaller parts, look for key words or seek clarification from your assessor.
  • Put your new learning into practice straight away and share the experience with your workmates.
  • Before submitting that assessment, read and re-read again. Read your answers aloud. Check if the questions have several parts and make sure you have them all covered in your answer.
  • Think about which of your clients would be best to ask help from for your practical assessments. Explain to them that you are completing a training programme and ask permission to use them as an example.
  • Keep asking questions. This is how you continuously learn.
