Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

A variety of assessment methods are used during the course including: critical reflections on practice, literature review, small scale research projects and design and analysis of learning experiences.

During your training, you will monitor your progression towards achieving Qualified Teachers Status (QTS) and will need to maintain an appropriate professional development portfolio to support this.

A final assessment will be based on observation of your teaching practice and the evidence base that you develop during training.
