Distance Learning:

The format of the Fast track KS3 French course is such that it can be accessed by distance learners. Since attendance at the learning centres is not compulsory, if the students are unable to attend classes at the different venues, arrangement can be made for them to work from home as a distance learner. In this case the course will include Tutor Marked Assignments that will need to be completed by the students and sent out to be marked. This arrangement does not exclude them from attending the classes whenever they feel like it or if their situation changes.
