Study, Assessment and Qualifications

Students are required to pass one assignment per unit. The format of assessment may also include reports observed to role plays and reflective statements – your tutor will guide you and show you exactly what is required. All assignments are relevant to the workplace, so you may find yourself conducting an appraisal meeting, or carrying out a panel recruitment interview or delivering a training session.

The course will require additional personal study to gain a wider appreciation of the topics. You should assume that the classroom hours each week are matched by at least an equivalent amount of your own time in researching related material and writing assignments.
