Assessment is via a balance of course work and examination. Students receive written feedback on all course work to help them improve. In addition, first year students undertake examinations in two subjects at the end of the first term to enable them to gauge how they are progressing and feedback is provided on these exams. Examples of assessments may include a group of 3 students present on a specific issue in food production – e.g. pesticide residues in crops / fresh produce – and how the relevant farm assurance schemes requirements effectively manages the risk to levels which remove the problem / risk from the food chain.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
