We want to set you up for success. Here are some study tips you may find useful.
Know how you learnbest: 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 outstudy 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.
Reflecton 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 newlearning 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 aboutwhich 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.
