Case Study: Introducing blended learning at Hillcroft College

A challenge for Hillcroft College is that it is a small provider but with a national catchment area offering very flexible patterns of attendance. For example, the ‘Women into Management’ is a Level 3, national programme offering residential weekends. These women learners include some employed in community group leadership and management roles, and who typically join this roll-on programme at different stages. They also have different patterns of engagement – some wanting to achieve a qualification in the shortest time, others fitting attendance around other commitments and taking up to 18 months to complete.

Hillcroft aims to use its Moodle virtual learning environment (VLE) to enable learners to engage with one another and with course materials throughout their programme, whilst maintaining the quality of provision by supporting tutors and learners in their use of the VLE.
