Getting started


Welcome to all new registrants. The main focus of this module is on the integration of theory and practice in relation to guidance work. In addition to the Guidance Skills (Advanced) residential, the teaching materials consist of: two online lectures; two online videos; a core reading pack; further reading; formative assignment and summative assignment. Tutorial support is available and can be arranged via email suggesting times for phonecall or Skype.

Saying hello in the forum
The forum is used thoughout the module to facilitate responses to exercises and formative assessment. It is our space and only module registrants and staff can see our posts. As a first step, you are asked to introduce yourself in the module forum. As the post-residential component is largely via distance learning, it is helpful if other people can see who is enrolled. Please do this now by clicking on this forum link and locating the thread entitled 'Saying hello in the forum'.

Module reading pack
There is a module reading pack provided with this module containing all the core readings. These readings are also shown in the reading list. You should receive the pack in the post shortly. Please contact if any problems.

With best wishes for a successful module.
