My aim is that every young person receives the same high quality experience regardless of how they access teaching and learning materials and that every individual is inspired to create and achieve their own career aspirations.

I have designed materials so that learners can become high achievers and have access to study materials through Virtual Learning Environment(VLE) 24/7, 365 days of the year. Tutor support is available through the VLE, and the young people are encouraged to share peer experiences through the VLE forum.
