For each unit studied you will be required to respond to nationally set assessment criteria, which stipulates the knowledge you must have acquired and be able to demonstrate to achieve the nationally accredited unit.
To achieve the mandatory units you will need to attend 12 workshops which will involve taught input to support your responses to the taught criteria. It is a requirement that you attend all workshops to complete the mandatory units and that all written assignments are submitted at the specified submission dates throughout the programme. All assessment criteria will be submitted via an e-portfolio system.
The volume of optional units which you are required to attend will be dependent upon your site permit, but typically you will need to attend a further two workshops per optional unit.
