Teaching Excellence

You can rely on us for an engaging and innovative learning experience that meets and even exceeds your expectations. Here’s how we do it:

At HSDC you’ll be taught by dedicated and experienced lecturers who are experts in their field.

Our teaching staff are committed to making your lessons interesting and interactive. Making sure you get everything you need to achieve your aspirations. Your lecturers will not only teach you what’s on the curriculum, they’ll share the tips and tricks of the industry and pass on their own experience too.

In many cases you’ll find your lecturers have excellent industry connections, and have already done the jobs you aspire to do in the future. This means they’ll understand the opportunities that will help you stand out when applying for work or university.

Our A Levels are taught at our Havant and Alton campuses in a classroom environment, but give you much more independence than school. We provide more teaching time per week, per A Level subject than other local Colleges. This gives you a good balance of high quality teaching time alongside self-directed study. Helping you develop the skills you need to do well at university.

HSDC Vocational courses are taught at both our South Downs and Alton campuses – you’ll experience both classroom and work-style environments. Giving you the opportunity to learn hands-on skills, using the tools and equipment you’d be using in the workplace. This way you’ll leave College with practical experience that prepares you for your next step.

We know that every student has a different way of learning, which is why we’re strong believers in learning anytime, anywhere.

We understand that a blend of classroom and digital learning is the best way to get the most out of your College experience. This is why we give every student access to high-quality online resources accessible from anywhere, whenever you need them.

These include:

  • Google classroom, a virtual learning environment which allows you to collaborate and connect with lecturers and other students during the College day, and outside of College hours
  • Industry standard learning resources, giving you extra support when it comes to revision and assessment. These can include anything from videos of your lessons, to specially recorded and annotated online lectures
  • Apps, because sometimes it is easier to study on your phone or a tablet. Lecturers work with students to integrate relevant Apps into your learning experience.

The choice is yours. Our device purchase scheme gives you the option to pay for your device upfront, or you can start College with a brand new laptop but spread the cost with convenient monthly payments.
