First and foremost is to identify the students’ needs. I make sure prior to running a course or delivering a session, all the candidates’ application forms, entry requirements are achieved and individual learning plans are analysed.

Progressive reflection sheets form the core assessment of the course climaxing in an end of course evaluation. This evaluation allows the student to demonstrate their development of understanding in a meaningful way. Discussion and presentation of a portfolio of lesson plans and evaluation forms provides the...
