SCSB courses are designed to reflect roles and tasks in current industry contexts. All of the courses are designed to be practical and project based, comprising both individual and group work through comprehensive use of professional industry resources. Each course involves a range of assessment tasks including projects and portfolio development.
SCSB VET courses are designed to develop and extend the learner’s critical and creative thinking skills, while the School trainers help students to develop their employability skills and an understanding of the world of work.
At SCSB, we provide students with the state-of-the art computer lab, and the most up-to-date training materials available, including access to online business environments.
You will be exposed to group dynamics and be required to demonstrate team skills by working on group based assessments and learning activities. This way you will learn to fulfil team based workplace responsibilities and expectations of the job.
As contemporary professions require employees to multitask more than ever before, assessment tasks in courses at SCSB are designed in such a way as to have the students work in a number of directions at once. For instance, an assessment task may require you to multitask the following:

  • Research, gather and analyse data
  • Produce report acceptable in a business environment, and
  • Prepare a presentation to relevant stakeholders

SCSB Courses are delivered face to face and in blended learning mode. The teaching week for different courses may vary in contact and content. Once enrolled, you will be provided with individual timetable and complete Course Planner.

Generally, the unit nominal hours are partitioned into following segments:

  • Teaching / class hours

Students need to allocate between 10 to 15 hours of self-study time per week to enhance their understanding. A maximum of 15 hours of self-study should be sufficient for an average student to grasp the learning contents.
