Modules & assessment

Core modules

Specialist modules


Assessment tasks will be a mixture of types, including in-class tests and examinations, and assessment of learning done in the workplace through reports, course work, development of artefacts or preparing presentations.

The End Point Assessment (EPA) or Apprenticeship Final Project will take place over a period of around six months, near the end of your course. You'll create a final piece of work underpinned and informed by the learning you have gained in the earlier years of the course and in the workplace.

Throughout the course, you will maintain a digital portfolio of your completed work, to demonstrate your achievements and capabilities. The practical outputs of assessments – including software, plans, reports etc – submitted for module assessments should be collected and maintained in this portfolio.
