Using these modules to maximize learning

Just a brief note on how to use these modules: this program has been developed to help you broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of this area of practice. We would thus encourage you to do the modules sequentially. However, we recognize that not all learners are the same and so you are at liberty to undertake them in whichever order you wish. We would also encourage you to undertake all 6 modules - it is anticipated that you will need several sittings to do this.
