Help Studying

Any type of learning can be stretching and often involves developing new skills.   Sometimes, we need some help studying – i.e. becoming familiar with what our course requires us to do.  This can involve developing your approach to your studies; learning how to research; planning and/or completing assessments.  People often find that their chosen field also its own way of expressing things.  Fran has studied at Certificate, Degree and Post-Graduate levels as well as receiving vocational training.  ALNS supports people who need help studying, preparing for and/or completing assessments.
