Taster Course Certificate
There are no formal examinations, assessment is continuous, initially through regular assignment projects. If you chose to do the Taster Course with tutor marking you will be assisted by supportive and thought-provoking comments from your mentor. We find our students benefit most when encouraged to self-assess and self-reflect so we do not use a marking grade or percentage system.
The Taster Course Credit (for units 1-2)
This certificate is awarded if you successfully complete the course with tutor marking and do not wish to continue onto any of our other courses. It is a certificate of hours studied.
Please note that completion of the distance learning Taster Course does not permit you to practice. However, having completed the course you do have the option to continue your study with us if you decide that you would like to be a practitioner. Or you can join our attendance course, starting at the beginning of the first year.
