The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments. Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade.
Assessment methods include subject assignments, subject profiles and individual subject assessment tasks. You will engage in a range of assessments during school experience, all of which combine as components towards your final award.
You will be involved in assessing your teaching skills and competence as they develop through the use of a Reflective Portfolio to which you, teachers and tutors contribute.
Throughout your course, you will be supported to prepare for your first year of teaching through the Career Entry Profile, as part of your Continuing Professional Development.
