Team work holds a
unique place at Forward College.

Independent student teamwork holds a unique place at Forward College. It accounts for nearly as many hours in the week as in-class activities. Across the three main cores of learning at Forward College, academic study, leadership activities and personal development, you will be asked to work in teams of three to five students to develop and complete a wide range of activities. 

Working in teams prepares you for your professional future. You will learn how to develop reciprocal relationships with your peers, plan activities and organise roles. 

You can see below the list of activities relating to each core of your learning.
