Support for Colleges and Tutors
The Mindful Education team is liaising with our partner colleges to discuss the best approach for supporting learners to complete their qualifications, for example by providing advice to curriculum teams about recommended approaches to scheduling assessments. Tutors should contact learners to confirm arrangements. We are also working closely with our partners to plan delivery for the next academic year. Students and apprentices studying a Mindful Education course can continue to study at home as usual and online lessons will continue to be released in line with existing course calendars.
The Mindful Education team will continue to provide full support to all of our college partners during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
If you have any questions regarding our work with colleges, please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Extended Access for Current Students
All existing learners will now have access to their online learning with us until 31/12/2021 free of charge. This is to enable learners to complete qualifications which might be delayed due to college closures and the postponement of assessments. This extension has been applied automatically to all courses.
If learners began their course during the current academic year (2020-21) then they will receive a further 6 months’ access until 30/6/2022.
This extension should ensure that learners are able to complete their qualifications successfully.
We are supporting colleges and their tutors by updating our flexible delivery models as circumstances and government guidance change. Follow our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to stay up to date. Please get in touch to find out more: email@example.com
There are many resources for colleges and tutors who will be teaching remotely. The Association of Colleges (AoC) have compiled a series of resources for colleges .
TES have also made many of their resources free to access.
A comprehensive user guide is available for tutors and students. To access the guide, log in to the VLE and click ‘Help and Support’ in the top menu, then select ‘User Guide’ from the drop down menu. This guide can be downloaded and printed if you wish.
Tutors and students can also watch the VLE demo video, which is in the course introduction section of the VLE. This will provide a good overview of the system and how to get the most out of our courses.
For further support, existing tutors should seek support from your usual Mindful Education contact.
Tutors who are new to Mindful Education should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
