Has your education been placed on hold?
Are you busy during most weekdays?
Has your past education left a negative impression on education?
Swansea College has created a new programme for mature adults aged 18+ who wish to go back to education, who may wish to improve their subject knowledge or who may want to gain a qualification in Biology. Our teachers are happy to help support
your educational journey!
We acknowledge that your every day lives may be busy! That is why we have created our after school hours programme.
We understand that students may have a negative impression on education, be that from experiences with anxiety to sit examinations at school, bullying whilst in education, or an educator leaving a lasting negative impression on the student. No matter the experience, it has left students with this impression about educational environments.
Nothing should halt any individual’s pathway to success. Our teachers are very friendly and supportive in the classroom environment.
Our online/in-person classes are small making learning more accessible for learners and giving the classroom environment a calm atmosphere to learn. Having a limited number of students in the classroom gives the students more one-on-one time with their teacher, for teachers to review students’ work, to provide feedback on what went well and how to improve students’ work for the future.
What is the programme?
Swansea College has created a new GCSE Biology programme for adults 18+.
Why was the programme created?
This programme was created by the director at Swansea College, Aisha Rasul noticed how difficult it has been throughout the pandemic for students who may have had their education placed on hold.
Our director had noticed a lack of adults who pursue learning in education, be that due to
past experiences within a past educational setting or adults who wish to continue their studies but they are busy with their normal everyday lives.
With this programme, mature students can feel comfortable in the classroom environment due to a limited number of students and a cosy classroom environment to learn.
For a majority of the population when they reflect on their educational experiences individuals say; I was nervous to put my hand up in class. This has been a major issue within educational settings, this pressure to get everything correct. Learning should be an enjoyable experience. Mistakes are a part of learning.
