How you are assessed

The course will consist of lectures, practical activities, and reflections, as well as a 20 minute micro-teaching session delivered by students. There will be classroom discussions and students will have assignments to do to form their portfolio of evidence. The lessons are enjoyable and form the basis of the teaching and learning of the course. This is a fast-paced academic course. You will need to complete theoretical assignments and a practical assignment, both of which can be work-related if you are already working in the sector. This involves around an extra 2-3 hours each week. Reflection on your learning and your teaching / training will take place throughout the course.
