Feedback will be given, both verbally and by the evaluation of completed tasks & projects. You will receive verbal feedback on the results of your practical exercises.

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course.

Towards the end of each session you will use an individual learning plan to record what you have done in class and comment on how you think you got on. The tutor will write feedback during the next session. This is a very good method of recording your own progress, reflecting on the session and a great way to receive motivation from your tutor.
