After each lesson there will be a question paper which needs to be completed and submitted to your assessor for marking.
This method of continual assessment ensures that your assessor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course.
You should allow at least 1 - 2 hours of study to complete each question paper. The approximate amount of time required to complete the course is 240 hrs.
In order to successfully complete the course you are required to complete a work placement of at least 50 hours. The placement is compulsory for this course and the student is responsible for arranging their placement.
Along with the first set of course materials, students will receive a comprehensive guide outlining what is required of them during the placement, how to set up the placement and the types of activities that will be required on the placement (including examples of the types of paperwork that will need to be submitted to your assessor for evidence).
The work placement needs to be for a period of at least 50 hours, though it can be longer if needed.
