There will be independent tasks and group activities such as analysing news agendas and creating our own lifestyle TV studio.
This is a RARPA based course, assessment is carried out though building of a portfolio and taking part within tasks matched to the individual’s personal targets.
RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five–stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
