You'll also be assessed via a portfolio which evaluates the ways in which you managed the student learning and assessment process, it includes your evidence-based recommendation as to whether your student is fit to practise once qualified. Other elements include a report by a practice assessor who will assess you twice during the course, as well as a feedback report from your social work student on your performance as a teacher, assessor and supervisor.
