How It Works
Students receive access to our online college site where they can access and work through their course. Lessons/tasks are listed along with supporting resources, videos for skills development, step by step tutorials etc. Photographs of students' completed work are uploaded to their college e-portfolio for marking and written feedback on how to progress. Additionally, students are invited to discuss with an experienced and qualified personal tutor their progress and receive verbal feedback, encouragement and support. Students may also benefit from relationships with their fellow online students as they can view profiles and comment on each others' artwork if they wish.
Formative as courses progress and summative at the end of units and the course. Your Final Major Project will be assessed externally by the exam board and this will decide your final grade. You will be kept informed every step of the way on how to improve your work.
