Although the requirements of Parts A and B are listed separately you should think of them as parts of a whole in which each part relates to the others. Parts A and B together must show that you can plan strategically to improve your learning and performance, monitor your progress and evaluate your overall strategy as you produce a piece of work.

The work you put into your portfolio should meet the criteria given in Table 1. These criteria will be used in assessing your work. As you work on this course, use the criteria to help you keep track of your progress and to check that it meets the required standard. Your evidence and commentary should be sufficient to verify your achievements.
