Coursework and assessment
For us the most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
In addition to the class sessions, we recommend that you spend time between the lessons, revising and practising what has been done in class.
