Course requirements and grading
|Assessment by course trainers, oral and written, is ongoing and cumulative. Course trainers may require timely resubmission of work that fails to meet course standards. To receive a passing grade trainees must:|
|Attend all required parts of the course, actively participate||Trainees should participate in all workshops and all required
teaching practice sessions. Absence is only allowed in exceptional cases
and trainees must make up for any missed sessions.
|Plan and conduct lessons||Course trainers will assess your lesson plan as well as the delivery of each lesson. There will be partial grades for each of the lesson components
as well as an overall grade and overall written comment indicating the degree
of acceptability (or not) of the lesson as a whole. Throughout the course trainees should demonstrate progress in lessons, as this is a very important factor to the final grade.

85 % to pass the test. If a trainee’s score is lower than 85 %, he/she will have a second attempt at the test in Week 4 of the course.
