Each stand-alone Unit clearly sets out :
• the skills, abilities, knowledge and understanding that a student must gain and any experiences that he or she should have;
• the evidence that must be provided to show that a student has achieved the outcomes;
• and how each of the outcomes is assessed.
Units can be tailored to suit individual needs and assessment is carried out within the centre by an appropriate, responsible adult, e.g. teacher, tutor, youth worker or trainer.
Students are expected to complete a workbook, which contains several scenarios that are built around the content of the Unit.
