How is my work assessed?
There is no assessment of work for the non-accredited route. For the accredited route, you will provide evidence of your work practice through observations, assignments, case studies, written accounts and providing work products. Evidence is uploaded to an e-portfolio. Should your submitted work not meet the standard required, your assessor will guide you on what needs to be done before you re-submit.
For those wishing to follow the accredited route, support materials and two additional virtual sessions will be provided with a CDI assessor to support you in meeting the evidence requirements. The units within this package are;
- Unit 3 Career Guidance Theory (12 credits)
