Frequently Asked Questions:

Every week we release a new unit with pre-recorded content and tasks to complete. The tasks range from sharing your thinking around a model, reflecting on your own practice or completing a canvas together, a canvas is a shared document that we use so that all of our participants can be on the same page. As well as the weekly tasks, there is an assessment portfolio, this is the summative assessment for the course which pulls together the thinking you have done across all eight weeks. You will also give a fifteen minute Live Topic Review and observe at least three other candidates, this allows you to see how other people work, as well as giving you an opportunity to reflect on your own practice.

The Level 3 course is designed to take a minimum of seven weeks in total, each week you will need to spend around 2-3 hours on the content in order to get the most out of it.

Once your written work has been assessed and passed our rigorous quality assurance process, your certificate will be emailed to you.
