Page 2 of 43 Welcome to Adam Smith College

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Department of Sport and Fitness. Sport, Health and Fitness is an exciting, varied and expanding sector, with a wide range of career opportunities. The Adam Smith College will provide you with the very best learning opportunities, staff and facilities. We ask you to give your very best to achieve all you can during your time with us.

Your journey into an exciting career starts here.

There is a considerable amount of information contained in this handbook, some of which will be of greater relevance to you as you work through the course than it is at the start of your studies in the College. However, we recommend that you read this Course Handbook through carefully now and then keep it safely - you will need to refer to it throughout your course.

We hope you will find the handbook a useful guide to your course and wish you every success in your studies Bob Neilson Curriculum Head(s): NC Police Preparation Information about your course

–  –  –

His/Her telephone number is: 01592 223485 His/Her email address is: bobneilson@adamsmith.ac.uk Scheduled guidance time: TBC This exciting course had been developed in conjunction with the Scottish Police College, Tulliallan Castle, to develop a tailored programme which addresses the needs of potential new entrants into Page 3 of 43 the Scottish Police Force. It will allow a pathway to the HNC Police Studies course and thereafter existing Police College programmes. This course would suite individuals who have an interest in working with the local community. This course will provide you with the under pinning knowledge required to progress to one of the level 6 courses.

Your Curriculum Head

Each course in the Adam Smith College is assigned a Curriculum Head, whose role is to provide you with advice and support through your course of study. This falls roughly into two categories – guidance related to your studies and pastoral care to help you deal with any difficulties you might encounter of, for example, a personal, financial or health-related nature.

At the beginning of your course you will agree your learning targets with your Curriculum Head. These will be recorded on your Learner Agreement which both of you will sign. Throughout your course, your Curriculum Head will monitor your progress and meet with you regularly during the year to discuss how you are getting on.

Your Curriculum Head will also be available at a set time each week when you can meet if there’s something you need to discuss.

However, if something comes up which has to be dealt with urgently, you can ask to speak to your Curriculum Head at any time. He/she might not be able to meet you immediately – Curriculum Heads have classes to teach and other students to look after – but he/she will offer you an appointment as soon as possible or refer you to another appropriate member of staff.

Your Curriculum Head may not always be able to personally provide you with the sort of help or support you need, in which case he/she might recommend that you are referred to a member of the College’s Guidance or Learning Support staff.

So, if at any time throughout your course, you experience difficulties which are affecting your progress as a student, your Curriculum Head should be your first contact. Please remember that unresolved problems rarely just go away. On the contrary, they tend to get worse the longer they’re not dealt with. So, speak to your Curriculum Head sooner rather than later.

–  –  –

Your success as a student depends on full and regular attendance at all classes. You should inform your Curriculum Head as soon as possible if you have problems with attendance. Our records show that students who do not attend all their classes have a very high risk of failure.1 We recognise that you may need to undertake part-time work, but we strongly advise you not to take employment of more than 15 hours a week if you are a full time student. Should you need to take employment of more than 15 hours per week we recommend you register as a part time student. A full time student is expected to follow their timetable and negotiate work times around it.

–  –  –

Your College course will provide you with constant opportunities to learn new skills and acquire knowledge in your chosen subject areas.

In order to make the most of all the opportunities available, you need to organise and plan your learning and also to manage your time effectively.

You must attend all your timetabled classes. You also need to study in your own time and you should plan to spend several hours a week to fulfil your commitment as a full-time student. You need to allocate time for this in your diary.

Prepare for lectures and tutorials by doing any reading or exercises in advance. Always make some notes – there is usually a handout provided. Review these after the class and ask your lecturer if there is anything you do not understand.

Note assignment deadlines and exam dates in your diary and remember to begin assignments early. You will enjoy researching and planning your work if you allow yourself plenty of time. Make sure you understand what you need to do and plan how you are going to tackle it. Seek advice from your lecturer or Curriculum Head if there is anything that needs clarification.

Some students have previous experience or qualifications for which they may receive credit on their present course of study. If you have any qualification that may exempt you from part of your course, for example from school or another college, you may apply for Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). Similarly, if you have undertaken work, paid or voluntary, that has resulted in learning skills or knowledge that is equivalent to units you will be studying here, you may apply for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). Together these are known as AP(E)L and it means you do not have to duplicate study you have done previously. It does not necessarily have to be in your chosen subject, but it must be at the same level as your course of studies here.2
