Why Mentored Learning

We used to run traditional instructor-led classes for the CompTIA Network+, but delegates were getting frustrated with the different levels of delegates on the courses and some people felt the classes were either too slow or too fast for them.
So we developed our Mentored Learning classroom to build classes around delegates individual levels of experience and their schedules, thus allowing the delegates to get the full benefit out of the course.

Here at New Horizons, our goal is for every student that comes into do a course to fully benefit from the course.
All of courses have a Learning Guarantee, whereby for example, if a student is doing a 5 day CompTIA course, they can attend for up to an extra 5 days if they like to go over any part of the course again with our instructors.

Say, if a student was to attend a course Monday to Friday in one week, then 2 weeks later they would like to come back from an extra 2 days to reinforce the course content, there is no extra cost.

Where this Learning Guarantee most benefits the students is when they are completing a course with a new technology to them. Once they complete the course and go back to the office, there might be parts of the course that they would like to go over again. This is no problem at all, they can come back anytime within 6 months to go over any part of the course again.
Also, when delegates are doing exam courses, they love having the extra days to come back and complete extra lab work and discuss course modules with our instructors.

Delegates can choose their own schedule. You can do 1 day per week, 2 half-days per week, you can choose!

About Mentored Learning

We deliver CompTIA technical training in our Mentored Learning classroom. The practical based Mentored Learning Classroom was designed by IT professionals, to suit IT professionals. One of the biggest advantages of the Mentored Learning Classroom concept is the flexibility it offers to those who require technical training but find it difficult to get time out of the office to attend scheduled classes for 5 days straight. You choose your own schedule, you can do one day per week if you like.  

The focus of the training is on Hand’s on Labs. Rather than the students sitting in a “Show and Tell” Learning Environment, all students must execute the Practical elements of the training courses themselves. They work one to one with the Instructors who can guide them through the labs. Working one to one with the Instructors also gives the delegates the opportunity to discuss their own Projects and with the help of the trainers, overcome any real world issues they are having. In this way, the trainer can help to customise elements of the course so that it is specific to each individual requirements.

The instructors are always in the room with you and can answer questions one-on-one and we encourage delegates to ask lots of questions to our instructors.
Certified Instructors are present to provide ongoing coaching, support and guidance throughout your training. Mentors can answer questions and provide additional instruction when needed to help increase your comprehension and retention of the course material.
