Support and feedback

Before joining the course you will have an initial assessment to check what skills you have, and what you will need to develop.

During the course your tutor will check your progress and identify problems you may be encountering.

You will also monitor your own progress through ongoing self-assessment recorded in your learning plan.

Additional costs and requirements

You will need pens, pencils and paper, and a folder to keep your work in.

You will also need a few essential mathematical instruments: calculator, ruler, graph paper, protractor and compass. The tutor will discuss these at the first session.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

You will be expected to undertake 1 hour per week of home-study. This may be written work or online activities.
