Assessments and Support

Throughout the course you will complete four practical assessments and one theory paper. These assessments are outlined below.

3 Formative assessments.

One practical assessment will be taken half way through the course and another two will be taken two thirds of the way through it. Your performance will be internally assessed by the tutors at the CSSM. The aim of the assessments is to ensure you have the confidence in the application of techniques and to guide you towards successfully completing the final practical assessment.

2 Summative assessments.

At the end of the course there will be:

  • One Theory Paper to complete which will be externally marked by the ISRM.
  • On the last day of the course there will be a two part practical assessment. This is internally assessed by the tutors at the CSSM as well as being externally verified by an ISRM examiner.

Student support

As well as receiving written feedback for both your practical assessments and written assignments, there will always be someone at hand to answer any questions you have during the course via email or telephone. You will also have exclusive access to online video clips of the advanced techniques to support those which are delivered in the classroom.
