Can you define ‘taster course’?

Many providers choose to offer ‘taster’ courses which should last a maximum of two weeks, but in most cases take part in one or two sessions. They should have been designed only to allow learners to decide whether they want to progress to a subsequent learning programme, and not aiming to deliver any other outcomes on their own.

Our understanding is that most taster courses in Community Learning are very short, but that they may occasionally be longer within Adult Skills provision.
