Teaching, learning and assessment methods
The teaching in this qualification is via module texts, electronic media, and online forums. The material provided is mostly resource-based, with an online study guide, and you are therefore encouraged to plan your own learning programme.
Understanding of principles and concepts is assessed through tutor-marked assignments (TMAs), interactive computer-marked assignments (iCMAs) and end-of-module assessments (EMAs). You will submit TMAs electronically and receive feedback through the eTMA system. You will submit an EMA for each of the modules in the qualification. Feedback on EMA performance is provided at the end of the module. You receive feedback on all assessed work, with particular emphasis being given to the development of skills through the period of each module.
