Assessment guidance

The learning outcomes must be assessed in a teaching and learning environment. Simulation is not permitted.

There is a requirement to observe and assess practice in this unit.

To be eligible for the award of credit for this unit, a trainee teacher must be able to provide evidence of a minimum of 2 assessed observations of practice in a teaching and learning context that meet the required standard of practice. The unit Theories, Principles and Models in Education and Training (Level 5) is a prerequisite for this unit.
