Growth in dispersed learning

This autumn our dispersed learning (non-residential) student cohorts have grown from six students last academic year to seventeen this year.

Our dispersed learners remain in their context and come into college throughout the year for block weeks, while connecting weekly through virtual pastoral groups. Trinity provides added support for the students’ context supervisors to ensure connections between the students’ work in context and their academic studies. Tutor in Worship and Church History Rev Dr Paul Roberts has now joined Director of Mixed-Mode Training Rev Sue Gent in leading a second pastoral group for dispersed learners.

‘I am delighted that the cohort has grown this year and am loving working with the dispersed learning students from both years,’ says Sue. ‘They have embraced integrating their learning in college and context with enthusiasm and are forming deep lifelong friendships at college and in context that will sustain them in ministry.’
