Mentored Learning

The "myWay Mentored Learning” was created in response for more flexible learning schedules and focused content. It allows each student to progress in a manner that is most suitable for their skills set, knowledge and schedule that a fixed, lecture based approach does not allow for. You will be mentored on a one to one basis by a subject matter expert with continues practical exposure and focus on problem areas, allowing you to progress at your own pace and deciding what content requires more or less time.

Distance Learning

Do a course at your own pace via our “myWay Distance Learning”. We have re-defined studying via online by combining self-study with supported interactive online video lectures, extra resources, questionnaires and much more, all supported via out Online Student Portal. You will get a course coach and lecturer assigned to you so that you never feel alone and have support whenever you need. Your coach will look after you and your study health, encouraging you to progress constantly.
