1st Attempt: The assignment is in two parts. 1) Presentation of a portfolio of evidence of own learning including commentary on how this relates to professional development at the appropriate SCQF level. 2) An informed report of 2000 words on the significance of prior learning for professional development.
Formative assessment forms a major part of this module and the tutor will work largely on an individual basis with students as they develop their portfolio and report.
Formative assessment will be given both verbally and in a written or printed format.
