Completion and Assessment

These two days will be used to complete the work you will have done in Part 1.  The first day will be a day of practice where the tutors will help you to prepare for your assessment on the next day which is the end of the training.  This  will involve an assessment process where you will be asked to teach the other participants who will represent your ‘clients’. You will have had plenty of time to practice and plan for this during Part 1 and you will be given your topics ahead of time and guidance for your preparation. The value of this kind of group assessment is that you will also be learning from each other – sharing creative ideas and it is usually done in a very relaxed, enjoyable and supportive way.

At the end of the final day on the 27th November you will be awarded your certificate and asked to sign the certification and use of logo agreements. In the event that you are not ready yet to pass the assessment, we will be offering you the opportunity to resit either in person or on Skype. There is a cost for this, for details please click here.  In previous years most students have passed the first time, so we urge you to allow time for some self practice and reflection about your topic on the day of rest on 25th November

Completing your workshop plans

Throughout the course there will be time to  work on your workshop plan and you will have prepared bullet points on cards for each topic by the end of part 1. Tutors will be on hand to assist you during part 2 and to help to make sure that you are going home with a template you can use to get started.
