The assessment will be continuous and integrated. It will take place throughout the course and each assessed component will contribute to the overall grade. When a tutor asks a trainee to redo an assignment it is because the assignment is below standard, that is, it is not a pass. Re-submission of unsatisfactory assignments (Below Standard) for re-grading is at the discretion of the tutor and the Director of Studies. See make-up policy for each program.
Access to Course Material
Access to material is provided as the student progresses through the course.
