Most students have access to a non-credited course in Communication.
It is essentially a practical subject where students learn about the different ways people communicate. Through various games and exercises they are expected to be able to work in a group or pair, listen to each other, follow instructions and co-operate.
The course covers three units:
being able to follow instructions by listening carefully and clarifying information and being able to give clear instructions confidently. This includes being able to follow a map and give clear directions to someone.
being able to interpret different emotions, trust exercises and working with masks. This includes analysing ways people communicate through body language.
exploring ways to communicating through text, email and other written forms. This included a look at punctuation, spelling and vocabulary.
Towards the end of the course students practise all of their skills in various role play situations. They have a mock interview, practice telephone enquiries and use their skills in various social situations.
