Performance also runs through the qualification and therefore observation of practice will take place 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.
This will all be assessed by a member of the Unique Training Solutions assessment team and will go through the UTS quality assurance process.
All of the assessment criteria must be met for all of the units to achieve the full qualification.
