FAQ: Recommended Reading 

The work on the unit will be supported by a variety of sources, rather than a single book (or a set of books). 

“Surviving and thriving as a professional today demands two new approaches to the written word. First, it requires a new approach to orchestrating information, by skilfully choosing what to read and what to ignore. Second, it requires a new approach to integrating information, by reading faster and with greater comprehension.” Jimmy Calano “Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.” Francis Bacon

Help & Support Where?

Teamwork: The Student View ‘The step up from 6th Form to University was a huge change and a lot to take in. Initially I was frustrated by the fact we were encouraged to do everything by ourselves with little input from teachers. Overtime, we started relying more on each another for support and this brought the group closer together. I have learnt a great deal from the experience and have noticed a progression in myself which I know will be vital in the years to come. For that I am eternally grateful’

The BCEs: The Student View “ The BCE activities were great. Completing the tasks really helped the group get to know each other and we learnt a lot about working in teams. Having milestones helped to keep us on track but not everyone contributed as much as others�
