What else do I need to know?

You attend college for one full day per week. (9:00am to 7:30pm) over two years.

How is it assessed?

You need to gain at least a Pass grade in each unit (Merit and Distinction grades being awarded for higher attainment) and are continuously assessed during the course through assignments, written papers and homework, though the precise form of assessment varies somewhat according to the unit. Evidence for learning outcomes may be achieved via assignments, presentations, practical activities and projects. Where available, evidence form the workplace can also be incorporated to enhance the learning outcomes provided that this is appropriate and authenticated as the learner’s own work.
