The emphasis throughout the programme is on the use of a variety of assessment methods designed to support the development of the learner's knowledge and understanding.

This will be formative and summative in order to ensure development and learning through and around the sessions, to provide a formal method of success.

Learners where possible, will use their workplace as a focus for their written assignments, encouraging the integration and comparison of theory to practice.

Work based Learning and employer engagement are facilitated through the Personal Development Process, and learners will collate a Practical Learning and Assessment and Development Portfolio (PLAD).
