As these 4 modules are theory based, we offer students the opportunity and convenience to study by blended learning. This approach is ideally suited to these modules as it allows a more flexible learning journey with students having up to 12 months to complete the remaining 4 modules. There is a calendar of workshops and students have a choice of when they wish to attend. As students have already completed the main Montessori method modules, generally these remaining modules are completed with ease however full tutor support is available with programme managers also available to meet and support students to complete assignments.
