How will I learn
Once you have discussed the unit(s) with your tutor. A skills assessment will be undertaken to identify what you cannot do and what you need to learn and an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) will be signed and agreed between you and the tutor.
You will then be given bespoke exercises to match your Individual Learning Plan. Once you are competent you will then undertake assessments.
