There is no formal assessment and you won’t receive a qualification, but you will be awarded an official City, University of London certificate on completion of the course. You must attend over 70 per cent of the classes to be eligible for the certificate.
Although there isn’t an exam, your tutor will assess your progress throughout the course. You will receive regular feedback on your participation in class, and any assignments you complete in your own time. This approach helps you to constantly improve and develop your skills.
Teaching on the course involves a variety of styles. Some activities are led by the tutor, while others involve role-play, and pair and group work. Discussions and conversations are an important aspect of our approach to learning, helping you to practice and solidify your skills. In later parts of the course you will also have the chance to develop an argument, present it to the class and reason your point of view.
You will also need to do some independent research in your own time and bring this to the lesson.
Alongside classroom learning, you’ll have access to our e-learning platform, Moodle. This contains lesson content and additional study materials to keep you moving forward.
