Students are required to pass each module before progressing to the next. Each module is assessed by the undertaking of a practical workplace-based project accompanied by a written assignment. Students are tested on their ability to apply new knowledge and understanding to their professional situation and to reflect critically on the result.
Learning outcomes are stated for each module. You are required to demonstrate mastery of the concepts and principles introduced in the module and apply them to your own professional context. By doing so you will demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcomes for the module.
The end-of-module assessment is designed to assess participants’:
- Knowledge and understanding of the principles and concepts;
- Ability to apply appropriately the concepts and principles in their own situation;
- Analytical ability regarding the application of the principles and concepts to their own situation;
- Evaluation by asking them to reflect critically and analyse the approach they have developed.
