Learning outcomes

Learners will be required to complete a workbook to evidence their knowledge for each unit.
Performance also runs through the qualification and therefore observation of practice will be carried out in the work place.
Learners will also need to produce self-reflective accounts, take part in professional discussions and provide a range of work products.
The workbooks will be assessed by a member of the Unique Training Solutions team and will go through the UTS quality assurance process.
