 The course is accredited through the Ascentis and involves 90 hours of study of which 20 hours are spent in formal training sessions. To gain accreditation it is necessary to compile a portfolio. Learners will need to spend at least 50 hours reflecting on course sessions, preparing and implementing activities and compiling their portfolios. Schools will need to set aside time for learners to carry out this work. Sessions are held fortnightly to make planning for this easier.
