Summative Task

As you work your way through the materials you will need to complete a small comprehension test after each of the units.

Once you have worked through the initial six units, you then submit a summative task for assessment by an online tutor.

As this is a flexible distance learning course, there is no fixed timetable of study. You get to choose when and how long you study, right up to a maximum limit of six months.
