OurTeaching and Learning Strategy

The Kaplan Teaching and Learning Strategy promotes a shared understanding amongst faculty, staff and other stakeholders of our key policies and priorities.

It guides us to the approach we think is best, and why. It also highlights professional teaching best practices that we aim to emulate throughout our company.

The Teaching and Learning Strategy sets out how we make a difference to every learner, inspiring them to succeed. It is strongly influenced by our evidenced based approach and continues to change as new technologies emerge, and our understanding of how people learn evolves

Teaching, learning and assessment

Learning outcomes provide focus for our teaching as students move through the three phases from knowledge, application to exam preparation.

We rely on the expertise of our tutors to make what is complicated appear simple and bring the subjects to life using relevant real-world examples.

Delivery channels

We offer students a range of ways to study. The four delivery channels have unique attributes, but also much in common, as one channel can be blended with another.

They are Classroom, Live Online, Distance Learning and OnDemand.

Assessment both influences and directs our approach to teaching and learning. We prepare our own internal assessments for most qualifications allowing students to test their understanding with exam standard questions.

For our apprentices we take a holistic view and assess more than the knowledge required to do well in the exam. We include the additional knowledge, skills and behaviours identified in the apprenticeship standard.

Maintaining quality

You cannot have a consistently good teaching and learning strategy without high standards when it comes to quality. This is achieved by recruiting people with a passion for what they do, providing them with the very best training, and offering feedback and guidance as to how they can improve.

It reflects our approach to teaching, learning and assessment prior to covid and whilst much of what we do remains the same, some of it has changed. Should any of these changes become permanent they will be reflected in an updated version in 2021.
