COURSE ASSESSMENT

This course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following standard guidelines. This means that your qualification will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam.

There is no word count for these assignments. However, one sentence answers will be rejected and you will have to re-submit it for marking.

Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by NCFE, as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.
