Many lessons will require you to contribute to group discussions, practical activities and you will be working individually, in pairs and small groups. Individual tutorials with the tutor will be available regularly throughout the course.


You will be assessed using a range of methods, including some written assignments, practical work and observation. These assessments will be built into a portfolio of evidence. Your tutor will assess your work as you progress and then submit your marked portfolio to the awarding institution at the end of the course.
