At Further Learning Group, we view our social media channels as another way to support our students. Facebook Student Groups are an extension of the Online Learning Centre, where students can showcase their own work and share constructive feedback with each other, and this can be an inspirational communication channel for our students. Our Facebook Student Groups aim to create a sense of community within our students and help them understand they are not alone in this academic journey.
These communities are closed and monitored, which makes it a safe space for learners or alumni to share their ideas, thoughts or work developed outside the course, etc. They are also places where students can share achievements, awards or recognitions with a wider community of students, graduates and tutors from their field of study.
Our students can interact with each other and with our academies in a more personalised way than ever before. We believe that being approachable, available and responsive is essential in providing effective support during the online learning journey.
If students feel they are part of a community and feel supported by their tutors, they are more likely to remain motivated in achieving their goals. It is our goal to empower our students to follow their passions, by challenging ourselves to find new ways to provide accessible quality learning worldwide.
