We believe that the best way to embed the ideas, tools, and processes you have studied is by applying them back to your work environment. This is why each module is followed by a post module work-based assignment, rather than written examinations.

You are required to attend all modules and submit Post Module Assignments, together with evidence for the end-point assessment.
