Assessment

What is the status of this qualification?

The course is taught and awarded at second-year undergraduate level (FHEQ 5) and offers 60 credits within the Higher Education Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). This is equivalent to half of the second year of full-time undergraduate study.

How will I be taught and assessed?

This is a blended course and the content, activities and interaction for each of the three units are both online and face-to-face. You will have access to resources, discussion forums, and course tasks within ICE Online. Teaching methods will include lectures, presentations by guest speakers and facilitators, interactive and experiential learning activities, reading and assignments to be completed by participants outside classroom sessions and online forum discussion. Additional teaching methods will include, peer coaching, demonstration coaching, role-plays, coaching simulations, case studies, small and large group discussion, and presentations. Some elements in the peer coaching will be co-tutored to provide immediate feedback and support to participants. Presentations from the facilitator will set out concepts, conceptual frameworks and theory relating to the topics to be covered; other modes of teaching and learning are designed to enable participants to achieve the stated learning aims and objectives.

Students are required to provide evidence of 40 hours coaching. These 40 hours can include up to 10 hours of coaching with fellow students on the course, including classroom based activities.

All students are expected to take an active part in the course and submit work showing evidence of learning. In particular, you will be expected in each term to:

  • attend the scheduled workshops; 
  • participate actively in class work; 
  • undertake reading and assignments set by the tutors;
  • access resources and submit assignments through ICE Online, the Institute’s Virtual Learning Environment.

This course carries credit points under the nationally recognised Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). We offer a flexible, part-time route to academic qualification. For further details see the section ' Qualifications and awards'.

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
