The portfolio is a mix between theory and practical. The practical case studies will be covered throughout the six days in training. The theory will be completed at home by the student. In order to pass the course, the practical case studies need to be completed and so the assignments. There is also 3 theory tests and the students will be examined constantly throughout the practical days. On the last day an Internal verifier will be present to also assess.
If a student does not present the portfolio and have the adequate information, the student can be referred. This is not failing but will possibly passed at a later date when they are assessed again. If the student does not feel fully confident to do the practical assessment.
We aim for all our students to be fully confident and competent to a high standard after the course. If you do not feel confident after the course, you are always more than welcome to attend more practical training free of charge.
