Speak up! Don't be afraid to ask questions as this is the best way to be clear on topics and other students in the class may have the same questions. You can always see your trainer at a break or after class. If you have any learning, writing or reading issues please tell your trainer as they can support you. Any medical or personal issues are also important for the trainer to know if they affect your learning or attendance at class. You're not alone You have a class full of people who may be happy to help you as well.

Group work is one way students get to know each other and support each other. Different learners We all learn and take in information at a different pace so don't worry if you others seem faster or slower. It's your journey - you choose to make it smooth sailing or choppy seas. Also there are different learning styles. Find out what kind of learner you are here>> Visual? Aural? an action person or combination of all three? Whatever type of learner you are the main point is go your own pace and get support from your trainer at all times. Happy studying!
