Guided learning hours are defined as all times when a member of staff is present to give specific guidance towards the qualification aim being studied. This includes lectures, tutorials and supervised study in, for example, libraries, open learning centres and learning workshops. It also includes time spent by staff assessing students' achievements, for example in the assessment of competence for NVQs. It does not include hours where supervision or assistance is of a general nature and is not specific to the study of the students.
