PUBLIC SPEAKING CONFIDENCE COURSE- USING ACTOR'S TECHNIQUE & TRAINING
Summer Offers Valid Until Sept 21st 2024

SELF-PACED ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING

CLASSIC 

Self-paced learning is ideal for students who cannot commit to attending a class or set live training due to work patterns or changing commitments. Due to the nature of the subject material the pressure to be online and ready for video live training is also removed, optional additional video assignments are available depending upon a student's level of personal confidence and preference. Self-pacing allows students to access pre-recorded video materials at their leisure, whilst still having asynchronous interactive options, monitoring and feedback with their tutor. Learn more about asynchronous learning.

SELF-PACED COMBINATION LEARNING
ASYNCHRONOUS & SYNCHRONOUS 

PREMIUM AND PREMIUM PLUS

Premium and Premium course options build upon the classic course, covering core course content and structure. Both options offer combined asynchronous and synchronous learning, building towards additional  personalised interaction with a dedicated tutor. Live coaching tutor led sessions, including additional practical exercises are specifically designed to build upon a student's progress and unique circumstances. Live coaching is undertaken online and is agreed at times that are mutually convenient to the student and tutor throughout the duration of a course.

Learn more about asynchronous and synchronous learning.

COURSE OPTIONS- DURATION

The classic course can be comfortably completed within 3 months, with each student granted 6 months access to complete approx 110+ units. 

 

Course options with additional tutor support and synchronous learning will require a longer duration, allowing tutors and students adequate time to schedule and undertake live training and for tutors to set additional units and tailored exercises.

 

All course options require a study contribution from students of approximately two hours per week part-time to complete practical work. Study hours can be combined and scheduled at a student’s convenience and pace, allowing time for tutor feedback where relevant. Students can choose to take breaks during the duration of their course but all course options must be completed by their expiry date, unless an extension has been granted. Expiry dates are calculated once a student commences their course. Repeated extension requests will be subject to additional fees, set by the senior teaching team and extensions will be subject to course tutor availability.
