Hi everyone. I have just started studying (paper based) and I'm not sure if its just me but I havn't found it very straight forward..or am I being dull? lol. If anyone out there wants a study buddy id appreciate it, be good to have someone to discuss it all with.

Hi Holly, I ordered the text version too, thinking it would be easier to follow but I've followed the online course more, using the text book as an addition source.
Have you got a school placement?

Hi both:) Yeh iv got a placement, i started off volunteering in my daughters class and loved it so i enrolled on this course. I pay monthly instalments so i cant study online until its paid in full which is naf:/ Iv struggled tonight il be honest. I wonder if its a little better laid out on the online study? How far have you both gotten with it? How you finding it?

I am still on unit 1 question 4 I just find in hard to get stuck into it. I am also volunteering at my son's school but in different classes to them I have loved the volunteer work. I am struggling to put it in to my own words and word that I am not giving the information they want.

I felt the same Vicky but once you submit your first unit assignments and receive your feedback, you'll get more confidence. I'd not studied for over 20 years so was daunted by writing an essay.

I would like a study buddy too and have not long started. I'm on unit 1 question 4. I really struggled with question 3a it asked 2 questions in 1 which sounded very similar. I also work voluntary in my children's school with yr 2. They are a great class.

That is a real shame, as the online course is quite methodically set out, so the assignment questions relate to the unit and sections that you're studying. Some of the information in the book is grouped together but I honestly find the online text easier to follow, as the book can switch from chapter to chapter and I couldn't figure out which section related to the online assignments.

I'm happy to help if I can! I can't understand why you're prevented from viewing your assignments online if you pay monthly.

In the book there is a 'check your knowledge' section at the end of each module, which roughly relates to the essay questions. I think you really need to get confirmation from your tutor as to what to do.
