The balance delivery of theoretical content and opportunities to practice or apply skills is essential. Learning experiences should be designed to encourage skill and role development to enable students to take on a vocational identity with confidence and proficiency.

Planning how content is scheduled into modules and blocks should take the need to build links between practice as theory into account.
