What is the average class size?
Class numbers are between 16-21 with most classes under 20. All classes have at least one Education Support staff member in the classroom. Smaller class numbers and overall reduced College enrollments can lead to a richer and more effective educational experience for students. Below are just some benifits:
Collaborative Learning Opportunities
In smaller classes, students have more opportunities to collaborate closely with both their peers and instructors. This environment encourages meaningful discussions, group projects, and shared problem-solving experiences, enhancing their teamwork and communication skills.
Individualized Skill Development
The presence of Education Support staff members in all classes further strengthens the educational experience. With additional support available, students who may have diverse learning needs or require extra assistance can receive individualised attention and specialised guidance, ensuring that no one is left behind. This focus on tailored learning experiences empowers all students to reach their full potential and fosters a sense of inclusivity within the College community.
Flexibility in Curriculum
Smaller class sizes can allow for more flexibility in curriculum design. Educators can adapt their teaching methods and materials to better suit the needs and interests of their students.
Stronger Student-Teacher Relationships
Smaller class sizes foster closer relationships between students and instructors. Teachers can get to know their students on a personal level, offering mentorship, guidance, and academic support.
