How will assessments work?
There will be three assessment sessions per year taking place in: December, March/ April and June. Assessments for all modules will be an organisational based assignment designed to allow the candidate to address a specific real-life business issue. It is essential the candidate works within/on behalf of an organisation that offers the scope to demonstrate their skills across the content of the individual modules.
A high level of individual tutorial support and peer to peer support will be required to ensure the learners intended approach fulfills the demands of the assessment in terms of content and level of skills utilised. Some assignments may include an element of self-directed assessment to ensure maximum applicability to the organisation and relevance of the assessment process to the employer and learner.
Some degree of presentation preparation will form part of the assessment for the elective modules. Assignments will be restricted to taking the learner to the implementation stage of recommendations – full implementation of recommended solutions may not be possible within the learner organisations during the assessment period.
