Flexible Learning We understand everyone has different needs and circumstances, which is why colleges may offer a range of flexible learning options. This may involve online, classroom, workplace, or blended learning options, co-enrolment, recognition of prior learning or additional options through an open learning centre. If your circumstances change, don’t put off your studies – s ee your head teacher about the flexible learning options available to you. Conditions may apply. Co-enrolment may provide additional options, see page 14. Freedom of information (FOI) and Government Information (Public Access) see - Privacy G Graduation Finishing your course this year? Congratulations! Ensure that you get the recognition you deserve by attending the college award ceremony – usually between March and June the following year. Your family and friends are also invited to attend. Additional graduation ceremonies may be held throughout the year for those students who finish their courses mid-year. Check with your teacher whether your successful course completion will be celebrated in this way. When eligible, you will receive a letter of invitation to your graduation ceremony so it helps if your contact details are up to date. See Changing your personal details. Grievances see - Complaints H Harassment see also - Discrimination Your learning environment should be free of racial, sexual or any other kind of harassment or discrimination. Harassment is any conduct (verbal, written or physical) that is unwanted, unwelcome and which may be offensive. Verbal harassment may include repeated suggestive comments, insulting jokes or remarks, and persistent personal invitations or requests. Physical harassment may include deliberate physical contact, persistent staring or rude gestures, displaying sexually graphic or offensive materials and destruction of personal belongings. How do you deal with harassment? Don’t ignore it! Do something to let the person know that you object to their behaviour and you do not want it repeated.
