You will be assessed by practical observations in a realistic environment on paying clients and through assignment work, which will include oral questioning. Online tests are used to assess the underpinning knowledge.
A portfolio of evidence is required to complete the course and support assessments. The portfolio must be handed in at the end of the course for internal verification.
