Organization of educational activities of students of correspondence courses
In accordance with the state standards for the training of specialists with secondary special education, extramural education is carried out according to the same curricula as full-time, in the same volume and with the same list of disciplines studied. A distinctive feature of the correspondence form of education is the fact that training of students is carried out on the job, in the form of a combination of periodic stationary classes during periods of laboratory and examination sessions with independent study of program material. At the same time, 70% of the time provided for the implementation of the curriculum of each specialty is devoted to independent work. Of the total hours of the curriculum, the number of classroom hours for part-time students is 30% of the number of classroom hours for full-time studies.
In college, every third Saturday of the month, Correspondence Day is held: counseling is provided by teachers according to the schedule. On other days, consultations are held individually.
Forms of educational activity of students: review classes, laboratory and practical classes, course design, pre-diploma practice.
The start of classes for each course is September. The end is June (except for the last course). During the school year, laboratory and examination sessions are held according to the schedule of the educational process. July, August – holidays.
The participation of students in laboratory and examination sessions is carried out on the basis of the reference call of the established sample in accordance with Article 216 of the Labor Code of the Republic of Belarus. The duration of pre-diploma practice is 4 weeks (1 month).
